Two Web sites selling tickets to the Olympic games in Beijing – but which have turned out to be fake – appear to have been closed down.
The sites, beijingticketing.com and beijing-tickets.com turned out to be scam sites that defrauded sports fans of their money.
The International Olympic Committee and the US Olympic Committe asked a federal judge in San Francisco to get the sites closed.
They are both inaccessible today.
However, people who bought tickets from them have no recourse and have lost their money.
