The pitchforks are out for tax avoiding ticket tout

The pitchforks are out for tax avoiding ticket tout
Admittedly, Julien Lavalee wasn’t a popular person to start with. He’s established a reputation for buying thousands of pounds worth of in demand tickets during times when fans struggle to get one, and then sells them for a large profit. That much I think we can legally say as it’s not in dispute, and it pisses people off.
He's also been accused of cheating the process with bots, but we’ll leave that for elsewhere, because the big news today is that he’s been accused of taking the profits from those sales and channelling them through offshore investments to avoid tax.
That’s not illegal, of course, but it is highly immoral and tax evasion by the rich is what costs billions, not benefit fraud. A dubious man.
