Taylor Swift Fans Warned Over £5,000 Ticket Scam

Taylor Swift Ticket Scam

Police have issued a stern warning to fans of pop sensation Taylor Swift following a series of fraudulent ticket sales for her upcoming concerts in Edinburgh. The scam has reportedly siphoned off more than £5,000 across several incidents in Scotland.

According to Police Scotland, they have received 16 reports in the past two weeks from various regions including Aberdeen, Edinburgh, the Borders, and Lanarkshire. The reports all point towards a growing concern over fake ticket sales for Swift’s highly anticipated concerts.

Taylor Swift is scheduled to perform over three nights at the BT Murrayfield Stadium from 7 to 9 June as part of her international Eras tour. The US star’s tour includes 15 dates across the UK with concerts planned in London, Cardiff, and Liverpool.

In a statement released on social media, Police Scotland warned fans to be wary of “too good to be true” prices for Swift’s tickets. They further cautioned that many of the frauds had taken place on online marketplace platforms.

The force stated, “People have transferred money for tickets for Taylor Swift’s sold-out UK tour dates. The amount of money suspected to have been fraudulently paid is estimated at over £5,000. Please be vigilant and ensure you are buying from legitimate sources, checking any bank details being provided.”

This warning comes in the wake of similar incidents where Taylor Swift fans have been duped in Wales and other areas of the UK by fraudulent ticket sales. Officers have advised buyers to be cautious of suspiciously low prices and to avoid paying with cash, wire transfers, or unsecured payment methods.

In conclusion, fans are urged to remain vigilant and ensure they are purchasing from legitimate sources to avoid falling victim to such scams.
