TICKET SCAM: Meanwhile, REUTERS' Keith Weir reported that British police are investigating around 30 unauthorized websites illegally selling Olympic tickets and "warned fans they risked being ripped off" if they use them. Detective Superintendent Nick Downing said, "At this time when the majority of tickets have been sold, the public need to be more wary than ever about buying from an unauthorised source. If they are tempted to do so, they run the risk of being ripped off for non-existent tickets or having their personal details stolen and used in other crimes" (REUTERS, 6/20).
