Pippa O’Connor’s Fashion Factory tickets are in high demand. Her upcoming Limerick event sold out in minutes and fans were left disappointed when they discovered that they couldn’t attend. Now it seems that someone is taking advantage of this and is selling fake tickets.
The mum-of-two was frustrated last night as she took to Snapchat to warn her followers of the scam. Informing her fans, she told them to be wary of those selling tickets on social media and to contact her team if they’ve swapped names or days with someone.
“On Facebook people are selling them (tickets) for way more than 100 euro which is mad, but anyway that’s a person’s own business if they want to spend more on it when they buy it from somebody.
“But what we have come across, which isn’t right, is people are trying to sell physical tickets, and first of all we don’t provide tickets, it’s a ticketless event. So people have made or have come up with what looks like a ticket to my fashion factory and are trying to sell it to people, which doesn’t exist.
“So the point of me telling you this is if you are buying someone’s place for one of my fashion factories make sure that it’s genuine and that you know the person.
“As I said, it’s not a ticketed event and we don’t give physical tickets, we register people by name on the morning so whatever name has been given when you purchased the tickets, that’s the name we go by.
“So if you are giving it away or selling it or swapping a day with someone just make sure that we know the new name to register you by,” she said.
We hope Pippa fans don’t get caught up in this scam.
