Ticketmaster 'Ticket Order Confirmation' Scam Emails

Email purporting to be from event ticket provider, Ticketmaster claims to be a "ticket order confirmation" for a recent ticket purchase. The message claims that details of the ticket purchase can be found in an attached file.



The message is not from Ticketmaster. Examples so far received omit the promised attachment. However, files attached to the email are likely to contain malware or phishing scam forms. Links in the emails may also point to phishing or malware websites. Ticketmaster Australia has posted a notice on its Facebook Page warning users to ignore the emails.

The company has also warned customers about the scam emails via the following notice on its website:

If you have received a non-valid  Ticketmaster Confirmation Email from “[email protected]”, please be advised that this email was not sent by Ticketmaster. Current investigations indicate this is a Phishing email and should  be deleted.

If you receive one of these messages, do not open any attachments or click on any links that it contains.
