More than 600 fans, primarily young adults aged 25-34, have fallen victim, losing an average of £332 each. But here’s the truly chilling detail is social media is the hunting ground. Scammers are actively targeting Facebook users.

This is not just a Taylor Swift problem

Similar scams plagued concerts by Coldplay, Beyoncé, and Harry Styles last year, with an average loss of £133 per victim. Experts fear this is just the tip of the iceberg, with the upcoming concert season poised to see a surge in fraudulent activity.

Here’s what makes this especially scary

Lloyds Bank warns that these scams are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Fraudsters are using social media to create fake profiles that appear legitimate, preying on fans’ desperation to see their favorite artists.

Don’t become the next victim! Authorities urge concertgoers to maintain hyper-vigilance when purchasing tickets.. Here are some red flags to watch out for:

  • Tickets sold on unofficial platforms: Only buy tickets from official vendors or verified resale sites.
  • Deals that seem too good to be true: If the price is significantly lower than face value, it probably is.
  • Pressure to buy quickly: Scammers often create a sense of urgency to rush you into a decision.

Report immediately if you suspect you’ve been scammed
