New Zealand is one of several countries which have been asked to distribute this warning.
The company, Euroteam, is under active investigation and
individuals are strongly advised not to purchase London Olympic or
Paralympic Games tickets from them.
Any individuals that have purchased tickets from these sites or any other unofficial vendor are advised to contact the company direct and to also seek advice from your method of payment provider.
