Read that earlier. I hope they are all charged with attempted fraud by false representation.

Nice little fine of £500 per head donated to the fund supporting the families & victims.

Very scummy behaviour. Not sure what type of person would do that in all honesty. Same goes for the people trying to resell tickets on eBay.

They should all be charged with attempted fraud as someone else said.

I just find it very disappointing that people should behave in that way. It shows a complete lack of respect and moral compass if you ask me. Those trying to resell tickets at an inflated price disgust me too. £40 to the victims' families, £160 to me. Scum.

They all should be named and shamed (whether individual or business)

Disgusting behaviour

Hoping ebay bans sellers rather than just deleting and other sites (like facebook/gumtree etc) are just as proactive

I bet no one here would sell those tickets on viagogo *cough*

people will sell them saying " oh we can't make it now".

Just another example of Broken Britain, I'm afraid.

Has anyone seen any for sale on Lokal yet?

The OP did't make it clear what the actual issue is which is nothing to do with reselling a ticket:

"More than 10,000 "unscrupulous" people have falsely claimed they were at the scene of the Manchester attack in order to get free tickets for Sunday's benefit concert, Ticketmaster has said.

I just looked, none (none on ebay when I checked either)

Did find this obvious scam for champions league tickets, sites obviously well policed!

As others have said nothing surprises me anymore total scum and should all be named & shamed but i doubt they would care anyway. Glad my parents brought me up the right way and i have passed that onto my kids.

How much clearer could I have made it? Reselling is bad enough but my post was about people claiming falsely to have been there to get free tickets

It was obvious it was gonna happen as sadly in this world we have sick backward **** that are happy to cause this **** and then we have sick backward **** trying to take advantage of these things.

Today what I found sad but amazing is the amount of people that tried to get tickets but couldn't.

It could be held in an arena that held a million and it would be sold out. Many times I look at this country and it breaks my heart but other times I look and there isn't a country on earth that come together like a fist.

The person must make the representation with the intention of making a gain or causing loss or risk of loss to another. The gain or loss does not actually have to take place. A representation is defined as false if it is untrue or misleading and the person making it knows that it is, or might be, untrue or misleading.

Arrest them......for fraud and for benefiting from terrorism?

Normally I would say they are scrum and not worth my attention. In a case where they are trying to benefit from the tragedy that happened, they are below scum. How anyone can want to benefit from such terrible circumstances is beyond me.

I expected a few chancers. The fact it was 10,000 is beyond random opportunists. It shows systematic greed and contempt for how we should live. I 100% agree that they should be prosecuted.
Anyone got a petition going? Would be very surprised if there wasn't one started already.

Well to be honest the article is very clear, though I'd already read it. However your opening post was a link. Which seems to be a trend here these days. So you didn't explain anything without click bait. Not here to argue so will say no more.

Title is clear but scum is scum so let's leave it at that.

When you read some of these comments and people are more concerned with the selling rather than the false claiming (face palm)

It assumes that people knew that free tickets were being offered to those at the original concert which I wasn't aware of so the term fraudulent didn't mean anything to me.
Then people were going on about selling the tickets being a bad thing so I was in the dark until I clicked the link.

I'm sure everyone who claimed they were at the concert knew if they were or not. :)

Which leaves ten thousand people who are lower than low. Saddens me to think people would think thatcway

How can this be a happening, when you can't get a ticket unless you quote your original tickets serial number!.

It's BS!.
Don't be so gullible fgs, I am from Manchester and I don't even want to go if you offered the ticket for free I would say no thanks!

Go and talk about something else please I'm sick of this it's sick!
