Police are warning business owners in the Blackpool area to be aware of a ticket scam.

The man – who police say they have knowledge of – is claiming to be part of Neil Diamond’s staff.

We are urging businesses to question their dealings with any person who states they can get complimentary tickets for the concert, especially when they are informed that they would be expected to pay a booking fee

And in the run up to the star’s outdoor Bloomfield Road stadium concert in July, police say the man has been visiting local businesses stating that he can offer tickets for the concert in exchange for preferential services.

A spokesman for Blackpool Police said: “We are urging businesses to question their dealings with any person who states they can get complimentary tickets for the concert, especially when they are informed that they would be expected to pay a booking fee.

“Police have knowledge of this male and are not trying to get any further information unless criminal offences are being reported.”
