    How many more consumers need to be ripped off by this bunch before the CMA take meaningful action?

    I don't see why these are allowed to operate yet you can't stand outside a venue buying and selling tickets. I really don't see the difference.

    I just ask myself - why does anybody buy from them?

    If their customer base deserted them they would have no business.

    It's a shame that groups like anonymous can't do some real good and take them offline.

    I really can't understand why politicians who appear to want to outlaw ticket touting don't just make it illegal to resell tickets at above their face value.

    Tickets are still on general sale for about £25 each.

    Is there a pressure group that is lobbying Parliament t9 get Viagogo closed down. Unfortunately I am one of their victims and am rather incensed that they are still operating. It is not clear on their site they are secondary ticketlers and for old people like me when you click on a seat you want that is what you think you are paying for. They are not complying with the court order ruling and keep changing their webpages slightly so you cannot go over their site to try to prove what you did. It is extraordinary they are allowed to continue to rip people off like they are

    Does anyone who of any pressure group working towards shutting them down - I know the CMA is thinking of further court action

    Thanks
