The concert of the famous American rock band Imagine Dragons, which took place in Kiev on Friday, August 31, failed to get hundreds of fans. As it turned out, people bought fake tickets from the scammers using a fake website. On this fact police initiated criminal proceedings.

People bought tickets through the website, and during the passage control at the entrance it turned out that tickets are fake.
“The incident occurred at the concert of Imagine Dragons. Great bunch of people bought tickets from a fake ticketing operator. The site is made at the beginning of this year in the Ukrainian hosting and accepting money via credit cards” – write one of the users of social networks.
“My daughter went to the concert of Imagine Dragons, it was not allowed… Tickets are fake… She dreamed and waited for almost six months, it was a gift for a birthday… the number of victims more than 1,500 people just in the fanzone, as in in other areas,” writes another user.
Most of the victims report that bought tickets through the website e-ticket.in.ua. Also some say that bought tickets to Instagram and OLX. At the moment the website e-ticket.in.ua not available. The average ticket price for the concert – about 2 thousand hryvnia.
