LONDON (AP) — Britain says it has stopped a black market operation in London Olympics tickets and the buyers of some 20,000 seats will be denied entry to Olympic venues.
Britain's Office of Fair Trading says the Oslo, Norway-based Euroteam was not authorized to sell any Olympic tickets but it did. The agency did not say where the firm got the Olympic tickets — which were not fakes — but real tickets would have to come from international sports officials.
Those Olympics tickets are valid only for the original buyer or recipient.
The British consumer protection agency says it got police help to shut down Euroteam's trading websites. It says Euroteam assured a court in London it would give customers "a full refund."
