After personally experiencing Olympic ticket fraud at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, James R Moriarty PC uncovered a seriously flawed Olympic ticket distribution process. Ticketing problems continued with the 2010 Winter Olympics and unless drastic changes are made, they will continue in the future.

The problem originates with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), who determines the distribution of the tickets. The tickets are not distributed to those who have the greatest need to see the Olympic event--the parents and family of Olympic athletes. The tickets are distributed in an unregulated process that fosters greed and profit, at the expense of innocent people.

If you believe you were taken advantage of while buying or trying to buy tickets to the Olympics, we would like to hear from you. A brief questionnaire that will let you tell us about the problem can be found here.
