Interesting Case

Are you currently promoting a concert? Trying to drum up ticket sales for an upcoming performance? The ACCC has warned that creating a sense of ‘FOMO’ to encourage ticket sales may be considered misleading and deceptive conduct under the Australian Consumer Law. Ticket retailer, Viagogo, could face fines of up to $6 million for not disclosing hidden fees, improperly inflating ticket prices and using misleading statements such as ‘less than 1 percent of tickets remaining’ when tickets were in fact available from other sources.
