Adler reveals Facebook fraud

Germany goalkeeper Rene Adler has revealed his Facebook page was hacked and misused to sell counterfeit tickets and shirts.

Adler, who plays for Hamburg, announced he had to close his private account on the social networking site after the incidents.

Via his fanpage, he said: "Hi folks, the problem of selling counterfeit tickets and jerseys using my name has so far not been solved. I will close my private account."

Adler told Bild he had suddenly received a spate of messages from people complaining that tickets had not arrived. "I knew nothing about it," he said.

The 28-year-old, who first mentioned the ticket fraud on Feburary 11, is now looking into legal action against those responsible for the fraud.

Adler said his fanpage on the site, which has over 70,000 likes, will remain active.
