Viagogo and your bank

Happened to me too ... completely overpriced tickets for the Sole Mio concerts. 3 times the price (buying 3 tickets so they made the price look like exactly right except the "per ticket" in a font which was unreadable).

Asked ANZ for help and they were great .. took a while but got the money back to the last penny.

Thanks ANZ - great job :-)

Another ripp off by Viagogo

I think I was ripped off by Viagogo today, on 20 May 2021. I bought three tickets thru them for a Pink Floyd Experience concert on Saturday 12 June because Ticketmaster was telling on-line they have only Thursday 10th tickets left. I was going through a Viagogo system with initial info that my tickets would cost me $342 dollar plus fees of 3 x $14 which I found reasonable. When I told my credit card details, the payment went through without a final page which would tell you the totals and you would press the final 'pay' button agreable to the amount. I have learned that I have paid $1,095 (one thousand and ninety-five) dollars only after the transaction took place. I did not know what I am paying. I would not pay that amount if I knew! Can I call you to discuss further? I have seen a similar inquiry on your web-site about All Blacks match price but it is not dated I guess it is old one. My mobile 021 117 8560. Regards, Vlad P.S. sadly, I am a compliance officer from MBIE
