The Metropolitan Police is warning people who may have bought tickets for the London Olympic and Paralympic Games from Euroteam's group of websites that they may not receive them.

London Olympics 2012 Metropolitan Police Warns of Euroteam Web Ticket Fraud

Detectives from Operation Podium said those who have bought tickets from a number of sites may be "a victim of crime".

The websites involved include:

Detective Superintendent Nick Downing from Operation Podium said anyone who has purchased tickets from those sites should immediately contact the company they originally tried to buy tickets from and get in touch with their payment service provider to draw this matter to their attention.

"Please check carefully if you have bought tickets from any of these websites, I am seriously concerned that anyone who has bought Olympic or Paralympic tickets will now not receive them," Downing said.

"There is an ongoing investigation by the Norwegian Police into the wider activity of this company and we know that the company have stated that they have not sourced all of the Olympic and Paralympic tickets that they have sold."

He added the Metropolitan Police think there may be victims in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and China.

A blogging website warning about Euroteam's inability to deliver tickets was set up in December 2009. The company also sells tickets to concerts and Premiership football matches.

Downing said the only way to safely and securely buy tickets for the games is via the official London 2012 website and he advised consumers to confirm they have a ticket before travelling to the games this summer.
