Meanwhile on Carousell, one scalper is selling a Peaches VIP Package ticket for RM3,000 even though it was only bought for RM1,488.

Another scalper is selling a Ghost VIP Package ticket for RM5,000 with the original price being RM2,088.

Notice to future buyers

However, a number of netizens have pointed out that the concert tickets are actually linked to the original buyer’s IC number and name, so it cannot be passed to anyone else.

In a tweet posted by user @melakaboy, he wrote, “Creating awareness on #JusticeTourMalaysia. You cannot resell tickets. So don’t buy from resellers.

He shared a conversation between him and his friend who is working at PR Worldwide, the company in charge of promoting the concert.

 

In the conversation, Melakaboy asks whether or not the tickets can be resold and whether or not its tied with the buyer’s IC and address.

The representative from PR Worldwide confirmed that the tickets cannot be resold and that they will block if the name or IC number doesn’t match the ticket.

So it seems that scalpers who bought the tickets to make a profit out of it, are now left stuck with the tickets.

 

Do you think that this is an effective way of stopping scalpers from hoarding tickets? Let us know in the comments.
