Interesting : A Welsh woman who fell victim to a scammer pretending to sell Taylor Swift tickets wants to raise awareness to stop the same thing happening to others...

 

Sian Williams had received a text from a friend saying another friend had posted on Facebook to say she was selling tickets for one of Taylor Swift’s Anfield concerts.

Sian said that, over text, her friend brought the post to her attention and asked to share Sian’s number with the woman she believed to be selling the tickets.

“Because it was a friend of a friend, at no point had I seen any red flags, any warnings,” Sian said.

“I’d seen proof of the tickets off the Ticketmaster website, where the seats were and so on, to purchase the tickets.”

Sian said the conversation moved on to transferring money, which she said she was told would cost £500 for four tickets.

She said she was asked if she had a Revolution or Monzo card, instead of doing the transaction trough a bank transfer or through PayPal.

Due to a £250 cap for transfers on her daughter’s Monzo card, the transaction had to be done in two stages. However, it was only when the initial £250 was accepted by a name that Sian didn’t recognise, she realised it was a scam.

“It sounds absurd now and I’m kicking myself because we’re quite savvy in our house. We go to quite a lot of concerts so I’ve bought tickets from various sources over many years,” Sian said, adding that they did not send the second transaction one they realised it was a scam.

When she realised what had happened, Sian said she tried to persuade the scammer to return the money.
