What happens if you drink perfume?


Answer:
Nothing, really. Perfume is mostly alcohol and water, and a few drops of essential oils which give it a signature scent. In fact, many alcoholics turn to perfume in times of need. So nothing happens... but drop by drop it must be more expensive than a nice cognac. So think twice.Drink water instead.
ewwaxo

Surely that defeats the object for the needy alcoholic? They should go for the cognac over the perfume though, that or Special Brew....
Ain't Ticketzone a legit company though?
Yep. I guess they have been hacked or something else has between Bradford and Ticketzone.
Also happened to Brentford fans see griffinpark.org/for…457 though not to me but I'll be shortly ringing Barclaycard to make sure!
Just to note it's not the first time. This happened to Swindon fans in 2010 as well.

Some people have had far more than £700 taken. One person (a pensioner) had a £1,300 hotel booked in the Netherlands!

My father was fairly lucky, it was just £30 worth of O2 pay as you go top ups, though he was on the phone for nearly 50 minutes last night getting it sorted. He was really stressed as it happened right before he had to leave for the night shift.
phoned and told bank Friday, first scam transaction same day, £170 scam amounts pending, got and 02 sim and contract by special delivery this morning not my DOB so not only are ticketzone useless, my building society didn't stop any transaction until i cancelled card Monday....and O2 failed to carry out any credit check......utter rubbish all round...
I can attest to this.
My card was scammed after purchasing Bradford Wembley tickets from Ticketzone.
DO NOT USE TICKETZONE it can't be a coincidence that this had happened on at least three different occasions with three different clubs. I have had nearly £500 taken from my account after using this company to buy Brentford tickets.
Not just football supporters!!! I purchased some tickets through ticketzone for my mum for Dancing on Ice had my card scammed for £60.00 to mobile top ups through O2 and T-Mobile. Bank were really good and refunded the money!!!
Don't think ticketzone problems have gone away. I had £670 taken out on 7th June to pay for a payday loan I don't have with wonga.They obviously didn't do much of a background search! My bank just said all ticket companies are suspect as they hire short term casuals who sell on details. Have problems after egery big event!
I also had £70 worth of O2 and vodaphone top ups taken from my account after booking 'Strictly Confidental' Dance show tickets with Ticketzone. Bank were also very good and refunded me and also reported the incident to the Fraud Department. I shall not use Ticketzone again. I still have not received my tickets either.

i went through them to buy tickets to bill bailey in april and last month had an amount taken from my card so it maybe related because i usually only use my card in certain places on a regular basis and this is the only "odd one out" so everyone should be weary
Can only agree with the other posters above...if you are happy to have your credit/debit card details ripped off then you should use Ticketzone...

They are an absolute joke of an organisation - AVOID AT ALL COSTS
I too had money taken from my account after using ticketzone to purchase tickets for dancing on ice, it was a paypal debit which I knew I don't have a paypal account. The bank were great and refunded the money taken, but it's made me wary using ticket sites now :-(
