As Splendour in the Grass tickets went on sale this morning, punters were confronted with a curious scenario, with odd links for 50% discounted tickets appearing on the festival’s Moshtix event page. But only after punters purchased these did they discover that unbelievable credit card fees of $1000 and more were applied to the purchase. The ticketing service, it would appear, has been the victim of hacking, throwing the ticketing process into chaos and infuriating punters who fell victim to the scam.

High credit card fees happening on invalid 50% off tickets – DO NOT PURCHASE THESE 50% OFF TICKETS!
