Due to the suspicions of falsifying tickets for the upcoming ice hockey world championship held in Bratislava and Košice, the police officers from the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) searched houses and other premises as part of the Macejko operation on March 6.
During the operation, carried out in Poprad (Prešov Region) and Spišská Nová Ves (Košice Region), they have detained two people so far, the SITA newswire reported. They also seized several USB flash drives and computing technologies.
At the same time, the police published the pictures of the false tickets on their Facebook profile, pointing to several signs so that people can distinguish them from real ones.
How to recognise fake tickets?
For example, in the pre-printed tickets, the last two figures in the left upper corner are not right. It should be 82 on the real tickets. Moreover, the VAT calculation does not fit. The bar code is false, even though it is not easy to check when looking at the ticket.
In the e-tickets, the details are OK, but the bar code is not. It can be seen that it does not have the required quality, the police stated.
“The best fraud prevention is to purchase the tickets from authorised sellers,” the police wrote on Facebook.
