I need help - hotfootballtickets.com - SCAM
« on: January 15, 2014, 04:37:27 PM »
Hi

My english is not too good, sorry for that.
I bought on the website www.hotfootballtickets.com 3 Tickets for the match Liverpool-Everton of the 28th of January. I paid about 1100 Euros! Before i paid, i read some reviews, and they seemed to me reliable. Hotfootballticket.com sent me a confirmation by e-mail, that everything is ok now.
Now, AFTER I paid, i was reading more reviews on the internet, and I am totally shocked now. The sites is a SCAM! Thousands of customers wrote that the tickets have been never delivered to the hotel they stayed in the city the footballmatch took part of. Never!
I really dont't know what to do now. Hotfootballtickets still tell me that there's no reason to be concerned, blabla..
It should have been a present for my dad and my brother and I paid so much money for this, plus the flight and the hotel are already booked! :(
Please give me an advice what to do :(

Greets

When I reviewed this site on a different review site on 6/26/13.  I found they were a "Scrapping Website" - using Illegal, Stolen Trustmarks
- Site Using Fake or Fraudulent Trust Marks and Seals are key indicators of a Scam Site.

After this posted review they removed all of the Illegal Seals then tried to challenge my review to have it removed, as it was bad for their business to show everyone that they used deceptive Illegal practices!

Well they revised their website to remove the illegal content and my reviews remain.

Once a Scam, always a scam!

------------
Use at risk and hopefully you receive your tickets.  yes I know this in not an answer, you have the final decision/choice!

Website Domain Name: HOTFOOTBALLTICKETS.COM
Website Registrar: ENOM, INC.
Who-Is: http://whois.domaintools.com/hotfootballtickets.com

❶ The website is just 7 month old - first reviewed days after it was online.
Website Creation Date: 19-jun-2013

❷ Anonymous registered in Panama
Website Registrant Name: WHOISGUARD PROTECTED
Website Registrant State/Province: PANAMA

❸ Web Site Location (IP): registered in Romania

❹ Site has no contactable company information on their website/
Did find: "Definition: HotFootballTickets.com is a trading name of a Private Limited Company, Event Action, S.L with address in C/ Aragon 208-210, Barcelona 08011, Spain and registered number B-65047789."

❺ Site does not use a payment gateway (processor), so they have full crediting over your credit card - no credit card protection!

❻ Site has loads of shill reviews posted all over the review sites making all of them untrustworthy (it's who you know).  And they updated their website just after being reported as a scam on these review sites then posted shill reviews at the same time!
Website Updated Date: 20-oct-2013

❼ Websites hides who they are, typical for unsavory websites:
Website registrar: ENOM, INC - I think they are U.S. based.
Website is Whoisguard Protected out of PANAMA - Why the need go to use different country?
Website IP: Romania - Why don't they use their own country?
Website is a "Private Limited Company" out of Barcelona Spain!

This website likes to span international boards!  Makes it hard to file legal complaints or find them.

But they do have a pretty website, it's full of colors!!

How did you pay ?

If you paid by credit card then please call them and explain that you think you have been the subject of a fraudulent website.

If you paid by Paypal - please start the dispute process. (you have 45 days to do this from payment).

    Contact your local paypal , paypal will ask your money back to your account, if you paid your order with paypal.
    Or contact your local Bank ( credit card company),ask them to charge back for the payment, then your credit card company will ask the seller for  the money. Hope those can help you. No matter you paid the order with paypal or cerdit card , the bank will ask the money for you. pls no worry about it.

Hi Jonas,

I am Jeffrew Warren, CRM at HotFooballTickets

First, let me say we always aim for the highset level of service.

I await your order number so that I may solve this issue to your utmost satisfaction.

Second,
To say that "Thousands of customers wrote that the tickets have been never delivered to the hotel they stayed in the city the footballmatch took part of" is simply untrue!

We serve thousands of happy customers each and every month!
Please tell me whether you went to the game and what happened on January 28.

Once more,
We must have an order number so that we may check this.
Thank you![/font]
