Traditionally, people buy tickets for events and concerts through authorized ticket brokers. With subsequent innovations, the industry has explored digitally transmitted tickets through online channels and websites and, more recently, issuing tickets as NFTs. However, the disproportionate relationship between supply and demand has caused people to look to unofficial sources, leading to fraudulent purchases and scams.
Buying tickets on the internet is an extreme sport these days. While blockchain technology and decentralized finance have undoubtedly made obtaining authentic tickets easier, it also has apparent weaknesses. In recent months, NFT ticket sales have been through the roof, and fake NFT ticket purchases have reached all-time-high levels.
Innovations like REV3AL provide robust multi-layered authentication and copyright protection for digital assets, including tickets.
Common ticket scams
Ticket scams occur in different forms, but selling counterfeit or stolen tickets is the most common scheme. Scam artists frequently pose as genuine sellers online or through classified ads, advertising cheap tickets, or access to sold-out events to potential buyers.
According to a poll of 1,000 American adults from ticketing technology firm, Aventus, 12% of consumers purchased scam concert tickets online. Statista reports that for every 94 million people who attend concerts in the United States, 11 million people are likely to be scammed.
These fraudulent schemes follow a similar pattern, with minor modifications between them. The process starts with an offer of early access to tickets for a popular event or one that is already sold out officially.
The standard process after purchasing a fake ticket is to wait for delivery. Some even tell you that a representative will meet you at the venue with your ticket – but you never get it. After completing the steps, your calls no longer connect or are not answered when you try to contact the business that sold you the tickets.
Occasionally, you may get the tickets, but they turn out to be counterfeited on the day of the event. REV3AL technology ensures real-time NFT ticket delivery and maintains the evidence on the blockchain.
It is pretty easy for fraudsters to create phony ticket websites and make them appear genuine using easily accessible technology. REV3AL technology resolves this problem by helping ticket hunters authenticate the genuineness of every website they interact with.
According to USA.gov, scammers, including individuals and fake resale firms, capitalize on ticket scarcity to charge multiples of the original value of a ticket. They may counterfeit tickets by copying genuine barcodes and logos from verified ticket businesses. These scammers may also sell fake tickets to different buyers and email duplicates to them. Some offer tickets over the internet and attempt to steal credit card details.
REV3AL can resolve the issues of overpricing through tamper-proof and inflation-immune ticketing systems.
