“Beware of fake Olympic websites!” Kenya Police warn

Kenya Police – Warning

The Kenya police have issued a warning alerting all citizens of the latest tracked fraudulent websites that have been set up by con men targeting unsuspecting Kenyans during this time when the Olympic fever is taking centre stage. The websites according to the police information are those which target potential ticket buyers for the Olympics. The Kenya Police Spokesman came out raising a red flag on the matter to prevent any further victims from falling into the trap.

Among the red-flagged websites so far listed include:

www.tixnet.com

www.worldticketservice.net

www.euroteam.net

www.euroteam.travel

www.londonsummergames.org

www.londonsummergames.net

www.olympicticket.info

www.2012tickets.org

www.euroteam.info

www.euroteamtickets.com

 

Speaking while making the public announcement, Mr. Kiraithe said, “The Kenya Police headquarters would like to inform the public that we have received intelligence information from Interpol London, UK, to the effect that criminals have created a fraudulent mother website known as Euroteam, whereby the innocent public has been purchasing fake tickets for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games.”

In addition to that, The Commissioner of Police advised all persons intending to purchase a ticket to enjoy that moment of lifetime trip destined for London to the Olympic Games, to consider counter-checking adequately to avoid falling prey to potential opportunists and fraudsters who’re taking advantage of the current period.

He also wished all Kenyan participants “Team Kenya” who made a safe landing at London yesterday, all the best as they go to conquer the Olympics games ahead of them.
