“We believe tickets for the Justin Beiber and Adele concerts were offered in a group of 4 from the Gumtree website and a subsequent face to face transaction took place involving the exchange of money for fake tickets.

“I want to hear from anyone who has bought tickets for these concerts from a man after seeing an offer on Gumtree for those tickets. We believe these tickets are fake. Detectives from Reactive and Organised Crime, Strabane can be contacted on the non-emergency number 101.”
