Taylor Swift concert ticket scammers are the reason some local fans are leaving teardrops on their guitars.

Perkasie Borough Police Department is warning the public of reports from residents of online social media scams involving concert tickets for the popular musician.

Police advised concertgoers buy tickets from reputable companies.

A scam will not pop up and say “It’s me, hi, I’m the problem,” so Perkasie Borough Police offer tips on how to spot and avoid a scam:

Do some research on the company you are buying from and only purchase tickets from the venue, the promoter (such as Live Nation), an official agent (such as Ticketmaster) or a well-known and reputable ticket exchange site.


Search engines such as Google are not always the best place to look, as unauthorized ticket resellers can buy their way to the top of listings with ads.


Avoid paying for tickets by bank transfer, especially if buying from someone unknown. Credit card or payment services such as PayPal give you a better chance of recovering the money if you become a victim of fraud.


Be wary of unsolicited emails, texts or adverts offering unbelievably good deals on tickets - it is more than likely that such offers are too good to be true.
