Online scam targets Britt patrons

 Posted: 9:05 AM June 26, 2013

A New Jersey resident allegedly set up a fake website intended to lure Britt Festival patrons and got them to pay inflated prices for tickets without even providing them, Medford police reported.

The fake website, www.brittfestivals.com, resulted in at least three complaints to the real Britt Festivals offices from customers who had not received their tickets. The actual website to purchase tickets for shows is www.brittfest.org.

It's not yet known whether the suspects in New Jersey have been arrested. Police said it's common for scam artists to create websites with similar names in the hopes of scamming unwitting visitors. Those purchasing products or services online should use caution and verify a site's validity before proceeding.

We'll have more on this story as it becomes available.
