Taylor Swift fans are issued an urgent police warning after £5,000 has been lost to fraudulent tickets in the last fortnight alone

Taylor Swift fans have been issued with an urgent warning by police as fraudulent tickets continue to circulate in the run-up to the UK leg of the pop star’s tour. 

It is only a matter of weeks before the musician, 34, sets foot on British soil, with thousands of her fans seeing her perform live at venues in Edinburgh, London, Cardiff and more.

The singer is set to take to the stage in front of half a million fans during her 13-date tour – but not every Swiftie was able to get their hands on a ticket.

With tickets so difficult to come by, some desperate concertgoers have been left vulnerable to scammers and have been conned out of thousands, police say.

There have been around 16 reported fraud cases relating to the Eras Tour in the last two weeks alone.

The suspected amount lost currently sits at an eye-watering £5,000, according to The Daily Express.

With the recent increase of Swifties being swindled, Edinburgh Police have urged fans to ‘stay vigilant’.

Police said in a statement: ‘The amount of money suspected to have been fraudulently paid is estimated at over £5,000. Many of these frauds are taking place on online marketplace platforms.

‘Please be vigilant and ensure you are buying from legitimate sources, checking any bank details being provided.’

The official retailers for the Taylor Swift Eras Tour were Ticketmaster and AXS, but tickets sold out almost instantaneously after they were put on sale in August 2023.

Ticketmaster did sell resale tickets for UK dates, however these too were also quickly bagged by fans.

The Scottish police urge concertgoing hopefuls to check the authenticity of the tickets they are purchasing, as well as the authenticity of the sites they are purchasing from.

They advised: ‘Check for accurate event information, including the date, time, and venue.

‘Pay attention to the seating section or assigned seats, which can indicate fraudulent tickets. Avoid paying with cash, wire transfers, or unsecured payment methods.’

Using secure payment methods to protect financial details as well as shopping for resale tickets on reputable sites, was also included in the police force’s advice.
