HK star's fans duped by scalpers

MUSIC fans who bought fake tickets for a concert by Hong Kong star Jacky Cheung at the Shanghai Stadium at the weekend are seeking police help to track down the scalpers.

Some 30 people alerted officers after being duped into paying up to 500 yuan (US$79) for counterfeit tickets for the "1/2 Century" tour concert last Friday and Saturday.

Ticket booking website said one of its inspectors uncovered almost 100 fake tickets on Saturday night.

"There could be more victims as there are usually 20 ticket inspectors there," said a customer services employee.

One victim, surnamed Luo, said he paid 200 yuan for two tickets which a scalper claimed cost 2,560 yuan. But when he reached the stadium, Luo was told the tickets were fake.

Luo found 30 people with the same complaint at a nearby police station. Xuhui District police said they caught some scalpers selling fake tickets.
