A court has heard how a fake ticket agency, going by the name of Good Time Entertainment, allegedly scammed music fans out of almost £3million.

Harrow Crown Court heard how Andrew Lagan, David Rolls and Gary Agar allegedly sold fake tickets to gigs by Kings Of Leon, Jay-Z and Paul McCartney, as well as for T In The Park, V Festival and Benicassim, allegedly pocketing 100 per cent of the profits.

The Daily Mail reports that Prosecutor Toby Fitzgerald said:

"Together the defendants operated Good Time Entertainment Ltd and through the use of this company and websites associated with it, the defendants offered tickets for sale to members of the public over the internet."

He continued: "They created 100 per cent profit for themselves because they took the money without providing anything in return. Having had the money transferred into a bank account controlled by the defendants the money was removed from the bank account."

The alleged offences were committed between November 2009 and October 2010. "There was no trade involved, it was simply a deception of members of the public," added Fitzgerald.

The trial continues.
