    Did anyone get their money back from a company called Hymac-contracting who said they had some tickets to sell for the home match against madrid.I read from another member on this site that he had bought one and that they might have some left.
    I paid them £360 for a pair via transfer then after they sent an e mail to say spurs had been onto them and they now could not supply these and i would get a refund.3 weeks later and nothing received yet.
    Anyone else in the same boat?
    Is member "balesthefuture" out there to answer?

    Just checked @baleisthefuture 's profile - it was his first post....always take a first person's post with a pinch of salt.

    Scummy scammers. I feel bad for you, I really do, because that is a lot of money. I did a quick search on Google on reporting scams in the UK...

    How to Report a Scam

    I would follow up for as long as possible if I were you to land these low-life in jail and hopefully get your money back. Contact the police, do what you can!

    My only suggestion is:

    1) Speak with your credit card company, maybe you're protected and they could trace the perpetrator and cancel your order
    2) Join those forums, link up with those affected and take joint action.

    Sorry to read it, but, do wish you get a positive outcome.

    Well that's your money gone you did a bank transfer didn't you. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is you'll just have to take this as a lesson I would report it to the authorities also.
