Three more people have claimed they were cheated of RM3,900 (S$1,300) for tickets to Cantopop King Jacky Cheung's A Classic Tour Concert, reported China Press.

These complaints come after a 26-year-old consultant reported that he paid RM2,800 for four tickets online.

In the latest cases, two of the victims said they transacted with "Adam and Sean" over Facebook but after transferring money to a bank account for their purchase they did not receive their tickets.

It dawned on them that they were cheated after "Adam and Sean" could not be contacted.

Another victim, a housewife known as Chan, said she did not receive her tickets after transferring RM2,200 to an online seller.

When she could not contact the seller, she went to the police.

Tickets to Cheung's concert on Jan 26 and 27 have sold out, with many fans queuing overnight to buy them when they first went on sale.
