One of the most anticipated live events of 2024 (yes, 2024…) is the return of Taylor Swift in Italy: the American singer-songwriter will perform at Milanat the San Siro stadium, the July 13, 2024. The news of the Milan stage of theTaylor Swift’s Eras Tour it sent fans into raptures, who immediately took action to buy tickets, the cost of which is not yet known (Le Figaro hypothesizes figures between 70 and 245 euros).

There ticket sales process is fully online and has already started with a sort of “pre selection“: would-be buyers have entered their email address in a special form on the platform that will sell the tickets, in the hope of being selected for purchase. This procedure lasted a couple of days and was officially closed on Friday 23 June at 23:59 Italian.

Indeed, the procedure implemented by the ticket sales platform will perhaps be able to keep the touts at bay, but it will do nothing against the scammers.

The selected ones will be sent a unique code by 17:00 on 12 July 2023, with which it will be possible to try to buy up to a maximum of 4 tickets starting from 12:00 on 13 July. In fact, therefore, from 12:01 on 13 July someone will be able to start saying they have one or more tickets for the Taylor Swift concert in Milan in 2024 and, consequently, will also be able to try to defraud those who would like those tickets, but were unable to get them.

But that’s not all: those who are not selected to purchase will still enter one waiting list because not all selected will accept the sale price, so seats will become free and someone could say they want to give up the purchase option upon payment of an amount. In short, there will be several possible scams, so you have to keep your eyes very open.
