The organisers of the light and sound show, The Enchanted Forest, have appealed to the public to request that they use the official ticket re-selling website to avoid being scammed.
The award-winning light and sound show, which is held in Faskally Woods, Pitlochry is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The event began on Thursday 29th of September and will run until Sunday 30th of October. The organisers of the event have issued a statement to warn people about ticket scams for the event and to encourage those wanting to buy tickets for the event to do so through the official “fan to fan marketplace”.
A spokesperson for The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, said: “If you can no longer make the event, and need to resell your ticket, please do not try to sell tickets privately on Facebook or Gumtree as this encourages scammers to target the event selling fake tickets. We will respond to any such post with official fan to fan marketplace details in order to protect our audience from falling victim to such fraud. Instead, please visit our Fan-to-Fan Marketplace service which will allow you to re-sell your tickets safely and securely and avoid being targeted by scammers.
“Sadly, this kind of fraud has happened in the past, and continues to be an issue for events up and down the country, and we are trying to clamp down on this issue to protect our visitors. We want to avoid any Enchanted Forest fans not being able to access and enjoy the event because they’ve been so desperate to purchase tickets that they’ve fallen foul of some very sophisticated scams.”
If you have already purchased tickets, but are now no longer able to attend the event and wish to sell on your tickets, you can do this through the “fan to fan marketplace” service website.
