SOCCER fans heading for the World Cup are being warned they might not get in if they buy tickets from unofficial sources.
Watchdogs said buyers were in danger of paying for fakes.
Consumer Direct, funded by the Government's Department of Trade and Industry, said there were great risks attached to going outside official channels.
John Field, manager of Consumer Direct in Yorkshire, said they had received complaints in the past about non-delivery, seats in the wrong location and counterfeits.
He added: "It's important to know what to look out for and what your rights are."
