That the website and its contains are fictitious could be gauged from the fact the official website of ICC for procuring tickets for the T20 World Cup matches is totally a different website. This may sound like an attractive deal; however, it is simply bait for Internet users/cricket fans who are keen to be a part of the World Cup matchjes and experience the thrill. Although World Cup tickets are in high demand, the supply should always be from a legitimate source. The ever eager cricket fans should ignore such mails . Websites that sell tickets and ask for financial or personal information should be protected. If you don’t ignore such luring offers the tricksters would be the only winners.
