i ordered one from the sun paper havent got it yet but that site looks like a scam anyway
That site is complete rubbish and I would never have fallen for it. Postage does not cost 99p. I ordered my tickets from The Sun with the Bingo offer (collecting 7 days worth of numbers).

There isn't even a contact number on there. Just email addresses. Dodgy as...
weren't these given away free form various retailers,I had some sent through the post

lesleysherrock how did you pay?
They charge 99p for each card & [COLOR="Red"]£7.01 [/COLOR]for the postage regardless of how many cards you order. I just wanted to make everyone aware of this scam as this site mycinematicket.com has links with loads & loads of other legit sites. I have reported this to several internet scam places & will report back with any further developments ....

what sort of claim did you file? Item not as described?


Yes, going through the options, Item not as described was my only choice really :

received my item, but it was significantly different than the seller's description. For example:
The item was damaged or different : selected this one
The box was empty
The order was incomplete

Have also reported this to trading standards so hopefully they will get on the case ASAP & prevent other people loosing their money too
Paypal are bloody useless, never pay for anything with paypal balance or bank account, always use a credit card.

I've had money back from paypal before. bottom line here is that research wasn't done by person to see that this site was dodgy. There are all sorts of cowboys out there - not worth the risk.
That site looks so fake, how could you guys fall for that
