Harry Potter ticket touts found guilty of fraud

Two ticket touts who targeted shows including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have been found guilty of fraud, in a verdict branded “hugely significant” in the fight against misuse of the secondary market.

Leeds Crown Court was told that Peter Hunter and David Smith, trading as Ticket Wiz and BZZ, used multiple identities to buy £4 million worth of tickets over two and a half years, which they sold for £10.8 million.
