<big>Internet scam targets NRL fans</big>
Tuesday, 05 Oct 2010 12:10pm
Police from Flemington Local Area Command are investigating what appears to be an internet fraud targeting people attending the NRL Grand Final.
A group of people had been instructed to meet at a hotel near ANZ Stadium about 3pm on Sunday (3 October) to collect tickets they had purchased online.
When the seller failed to arrive with the tickets as arranged, victims attempted to contact the seller by phone. All attempts were unsuccessful and police were called in.
At this time police believe at least 100 people have been victims of the scam, which involved buying tickets to the Grand Final via the internet.
Police have spoken with a number of victims, however, suspect there may be some who left the hotel before police arrived.
Anyone with information about the incident, or who believes they are a victim, is urged to contact Flemington Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
