The Telegraph reports that over £2M was defrauded from thousands of Olympic fans by way of an internet ticket scam in 2007.
Allan Thomas Scott, Gerardus Petrus Paulus van Meer and Terence Shepherd (involved in the internet company Xclusive Leisure and Hospitality Ltd) were found guilty of deceit and conspiring to injure by unlawful means. They were also made personally liable for the company's debts.
Needless to say, despite these people being caught, other scammers will be hard at work in preparation for the London games.
