I was emailed in Oz today because I was chasing a ticket for Lords. I have lived in Perth over 30 years and never seen England play at home so placed a notice looking for tickets.

The guy who regularly posts on site emailed me and wanted 425 quid for day 3 so if thats not scalping what is?.

As a WACA member I have always bought extra members tickets when England play here and resale at cost.

I am happy to pay a premium for lords tickets but 425 is a bit rich ?

Is that someone off this forum?

I'm still after Lords tickets for Thursday and Friday (going to Wycombe Wanderers v Villa on the Saturday ;) ) but won't be paying much over the face value price!!!

I'd say it's a bit rich....f#$king scumbag!!

Can you access the old forum Stoney?? www.barmyarmy.com/forum/index.php

If you log in there I suggest you send Big Harvey a PM and give him the details (assuming you don't want to name and shame publicly) We adopt a zero tolerance policy here to that bullshit so I'm sure if you give Big H the details he'll take the appropriate action.

Very sad to think a regular poster here would try something like that on though.

Thanks for support guys. I was a bit surprised when the guy asked 425 quid for 1 day 3 ticket. I don't know how to contact Big Harvey but if someone can pass on my email too him in will give him the guys details as it probably not right to name and shame at this stage

stones1972@iinet.net.au

Thanks guys

Thanks for support. I'm a Bristol Rovers fan (someone has to be) but cant help myself. May stay after ashes and catch a few games whilst in over.

Cheers

Why is it 'not right'. You have the evidence, assuming you kept his email, so name him. He deserves it. Good luck with the tx.

You have e-mail (or should have, anyway!).

You are absolutely right not to name or shame at this stage, just in case things are not what they seem. As with all reports of touting on the forum, this will be investigated.

No names required Sam but was that from a regular forum poster too?? Very disappointing if so.
