Police are trying to track down people who were sold fake Drake tickets by scammers at Stratford Tube station when the Canadian star played London’s O2 Arena in March.

Det Con Oliver Carne, the investigating officer, said: “A number of people have reported that they were sold fake tickets outside Stratford London Underground station, but only realised the tickets weren’t genuine when they got to the venue.

“Though only four victims have come forward so far, we believe there could be many more victims who travelled from all over the UK to see Drake.”

Det Con Carne added: “I’m appealing to anyone who has been sold fake Drake tickets outside a train or Tube station, but has not yet spoken to police, to come forward.

“We have a number of leads, but need as many people as possible to get in touch.”

A 17-year-old man, from Hackney, has been arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

He has been released on police bail until Thursday, 8 May pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting TSub/B3 of 31/03/14. Alternatively, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
