These patrols have brought attention to a Twitter account under the username @iamyourpuduu, which claimed that their friend had incurred a loss of IDR 1.2 million due to fraudulent ticket sales.

The account also reported additional victims who suffered losses amounting to tens of millions of rupiah, allegedly as a result of deceptive practices by users of the Twitter account @findtrove_id.

As the investigation progresses, the summoning of ticket sales providers is expected to provide crucial information regarding the alleged fraud. The authorities remain committed to ensuring a fair and transparent process while addressing concerns related to ticket sales for the highly anticipated Coldplay concert.
