Cheating for movie ticket
I bought few movie tickets online from a new site. When I went to the theatre they said that the tickets were not valid and were fake. Can you please suggest if I can hold the site owners liable for this?
You have been cheated by the website. You should report to the police regarding such fraud sites and try holding them liable for cheating under IPC.
