A woman in New Jersey lost $2,000 on a Taylor Swift ticket scam. The fan responded to a Facebook ad that advertised Taylor Swift tickets for sale. She sent $1,480 for the tickets using Zelle but never received the tickets, and the scammer even asked for more money afterward. Officials advise against buying tickets from websites like Facebook or Craigslist to avoid scams. Another cautionary sign, according to them, is asking for payment via gift cards, prepaid debit cards, or online payment methods.
