The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) is advising Taylor Swift fans to beware of ticket resale scams after several Swifties in Ottawa recently found themselves with blank spaces in their bank accounts.

In August, Swift announced six live performances in Toronto in November 2024 as part of her career-spanning Eras Tour.

The approximately 300,000 tickets to the shows — Swift’s only tour stops in Canada — sold out quickly and have since become a scarce commodity among fans. 

On Friday, Ottawa police said their fraud unit had received many complaints in recent weeks about fake ticket sales through Facebook Marketplace or Kijiji.

Ottawa police said residents reportedly lost over $12,000 in just three days to Taylor Swift-related frauds, with some losing “upwards of $2,000.”
