With less than a month until the Rugby World Cup kicks off, sports fans are being warned about ticket scams.

Which? has concerns about one website in particular: GetSporting.com. It offers deals that may be too good to be true, selling tickets for sold out matches like England v Australia and England v Wales. According to Which? inquiries into the company's track record and several online review sites, it appears consumers are unlikely to receive tickets or could even receive fake ones.

GetSporting.com is not registered as an official Rugby World Cup 2015 re-selling site and is operating against the ticketing policy for Rugby World Cup 2015, allowing people to buy up to 10 tickets at once instead of the official allowance of four.

Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said: "With fans trying to get last minute tickets to Rugby World Cup 2015, it's an ideal time for ticket scammers to try to make a fast buck. We expect the authorities to take swift action against dodgy sites and we advise people to keep their wits about them. If an offer looks too good to be true, it probably is."
