Internet ticket touts who used bots to buy thousands of tickets to events are guilty of fraud

Two internet ticket touts who re-sold tickets to top music concerts for a profit of almost £7million have been found guilty of fraud following a landmark trial.

Peter Hunter, 51, and David Smith, 66, used multiple identities and computer bots to buy £4 million worth of tickets to high-profile acts such as Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran over two-and-a-half years.
