Beware offers of Michael Jackson tickets

We've found a string online ticket touts offering to sell Michael Jackson concert tickets that they don't actually have.
Pre-sale tickets for May's shows at the O2- for fan club members and other registered fans only - don't go on sale until this Wednesday (March 11). The rest of the tickets go on sale on Friday (March 13).
Yet aceticket.co.uk are selling tickets starting from £295. VIP tickets are available for £1,500.
Our old friends at theonlineticketshop.com are already selling Jackson tickets for between £295 and £1,150, while their sister site - theonlineticketexchange.com - is offering them for £355 to £1,575.
One website, worldticketshop.com, based in Holland, suggests you "secure your tickets as soon as possible" by paying them £535 to £715.
Another Dutch site, budgetticket.nl is offering Michael Jackson tickets for €695 (£636).
We are not saying that you are not going to get any tickets from these sites - just that they don't actually possess the tickets they are selling and so you might end up empty-handed and asking for a refund.
I think fans should be VERY careful indeed!!!
