Police issue warning over fraudulent Olympic ticket sites

Police investigating the sale of Olympic tickets on fraudulent websites are appealing for potential victims to come forward.

Detectives from Operation Podium have been investigating the websites www.2012-londonsummergames.org and www.2012-londonsummergames.com since October 2011.

Detective Superintendent Nick Downing said:

"... I urge anyone who has bought tickets from either of these websites to please get in touch with us at podiumenquiries@met.police.uk."

"... At this time when the majority of tickets have been sold, the public need to be more wary than ever about buying from an unauthorised source."
