MPs have advised that punters do not use Viagogo - I refuse to use sites like them as they are a chronic rip off and nothing more than unrepentant bullies who don't care about the people buying the tickets. The MPs advice is quite damning:
"We believe that Viagogo has yet to prove itself a trustworthy operator given its history of resisting compliance, court orders & parliamentary scrutiny, & flouting consumer law"

Be careful where you buy gig tickets from and don't fall over charlatans like Viagogo.

Too late for me; I recently paid well over the odds for tickets. I regret the way I bought them and should have paid more attention, but their sales methods were really underhand. As soon as I clicked the final button, I was informed exactly how much I had paid. I'm annoyed and also embarrassed at being had over by them. They refuse to give a refund, but state you can sell them on their site for no extra fees if you don't want them; they don't send the tickets to you in enough time to allow you to sell them elsewhere. I couldn't bring myself to sell them on their site, nor do I have the time and energy to keep my dispute going.
I've accepted that I got conned by them and will now try to enjoy the gig.
Never again.

The ticket sellers should offer refunds, sometimes you might buy a ticket then be unable to make it. What would you do? Take the loss or sell it for a profit?
