Susan Boyle's record company has released a statement warning fans about a possible ticket scam.

A hoax email was sent to newsrooms claiming that the singing sensation was going to perform in Australia and New Zealand, but Sony BMG says that Boyle doesn't have any plans to tour Down Under at this time.

"We can categorically deny Susan was ­scheduled to play any dates in either of these two ­countries," said Susan's spokesperson.

Boyle's management has warned fans to not be duped into purchasing tickets for the fake concerts.
