Thousands of fraudulent claims have been filed by people hoping to receive free tickets to Sunday’s “One Love Manchester” concert, according to the Washington Post.

The event, featuring Arianna Grande – at whos concert the terrorist attack in Manchester occurred – and several other headliners, was offering free admission to the approximately 14,000 people who were at the original Grande show. Over 25,000 people submitted applications for the free tickets.

Sunday’s show will be held at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, which can hold up to 50,000 for a music event. Secondary marketplaces had largely said they would not allow tickets to the benefit show to be listed on their sites, but listings were found on Ebay as well as other sites after the rapid sellout.
