The well-known British broadcaster James Allen revealed on his blog that an agency called 'Simply The Ticket' has closed down without delivering paid tickets to hopeful F1 spectators.

The business' official website and Twitter account are not working.

"Looks like Simply The Ticket has absconded with F1 ticket holders' money for Valencia this weekend," someone Tweeted.

Another wondered: "Was (Simply The Ticket) a relatively new site or had it been around a while? If the former, sounds like a massive scam."

A bio at a third party website reads: "Simply The Ticket sells F1 Grand Prix tickets as well as tickets to theatre, sport, music, concerts and other events.

"We also supply corporate hospitality packages to all sporting events."

The company did not respond to an email or answer a phone call.
