Tickets to Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour have been in high demand since they first went on sale, and many people are looking to buy tickets for her show in New Orleans in 2024.
With many people not being able to get tickets yet, some fans have turned to ticket resellers. Unfortunately, scammers have noticed the high demand and target Swifties with ticket scams. So far in 2023, BBB Scam Tracker has gotten about 30 reports involving fake Taylor Swift tickets.
One Taylor Swift fan reported this scam version to BBB Scam Tracker: “The seller told me she was a verified seller and that she was an admin in the Facebook group. The transaction took place over Zelle. After the transaction occurred, the seller failed to send me the tickets and failed to send me a refund.”

How to avoid ticket buying scams:
Only buy tickets from trusted vendors. Even if you can no longer get tickets directly from the venue or Ticketmaster, look to reputable ticket brokers before doing business with a ticket scalper or a random stranger on social media.
Even if you think you know the seller, double-check. Scammers may hack your contacts’ accounts and pretend to be a friend who’s selling tickets. Before sending money, contact your friend directly to make sure the deal is real.
Watch out for too-good-to-be-true deals. If someone claims to be selling tickets to this concert or at an amazing price, think twice. Scammers love to prey on fans of any artist by claiming to have impossible-to-get-tickets for them.
Use good judgment with advertisements. Some ads are scams, whether after a general internet search or in your social media feed. Be careful about clicking through and offering up personal information.
Use your credit card. Credit cards generally offer extra protection in case you find out the tickets were a sham. You may not get your money back if you pay with your debit card, a cash transfer app, or cash.
