    TAKE THAT broke tour sales records yesterday - sparking fears of a biggest ever tickets scam.

    Fans have snapped up the 1.35million official tickets, meaning all 25 dates are now sold out. Firms estimated that 50 tickets were being sold every second. But internet experts revealed at least one new fake ticket website was appearing every hour yesterday.

    Bogus sites - some based as far away as India - either take cash for non-existent tickets then close down, or use the buyer's personal details for identity fraud.

    With touts selling tickets too, scams could rake in £23million.

    It is very easy to set up a website selling these tickets and lots of people will, I am not suggesting anyone tries this at all and is only posted here as news and information.
