Greedy touts are attempting to punt tickets to Scotland’s first Euro 2020 game on eBay for hundreds of pounds.
Briefs for the national team’s match against the Czech Republic at Hampden on Monday, June 14, are selling on the bidding platform despite a ban on resales.
The tickets are being flogged at heavily inflated prices with one seller punting two tickets at £650, despite the original face value being £50.
A description on the site reads: “These tickets are E-Tickets and will be transferred via your email address through the euro 2020 ticket app, as soon as the payment has been received.

“The transfer will have to be done in person for peace of mind for both parties with the tickets being marked as received by the buyer through ebay.”
Another ticket for the match is currently bidding and has reached £246.
The seller states: “Scotland v Czech Republic EURO 2020 ticket x1
“Monday 14th of June 2021, Hampden Park Glasgow, the ticket is seated in the East stand, section G2 behind the goal.
“Ticket will be transferred by email through the EURO 2020 app as soon as payment is received.
“I also have another ticket available seated directly in front of this ticket. If you are interested in buying the two tickets send me a message.
“Get in touch if you have any questions.”
We previously told how sellers were targeting the Tartan Army with Euro 2020 briefs costing more than 20 times face value.
The Record revealed last month how notorious super-tout Atle Barlaup’s website was charging Scotland fans more than €1000 (£861) for tickets with a face value of €50 (£43) for the showdown at Wembley against England on June 18.
The exploitation of fans comes despite recent legislation passed by the Scottish Parliament banning ticket touting.
Uefa also banned the resale of tickets and threatened that tickets flogged outside sites could be canceled and sellers would face a fine of up to £5,000.
However, exceptions have been made for those looking to swap their tickets if they are ill as a result of the pandemic.
However, this only applies if the original buyer is transferring their ticket to a friend or family member, via the Euro 2020 app - not general resale.
We previously reported how as well as the tout sites, several other scam sites are being allowed to list tickets that don’t exist, luring in fans and simply pocketing the cash.
