I was charged $9,000 for Taylor Swift tickets that I didn’t get after 8 hours of waiting
Look what Taylor made her do.
A 25-year-old woman claimed she waited in the now infamous virtual queue for tickets to Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour and was charged 14 times for tickets she never received.
Sydney Wallace told Insider that she entered her credit card information before the crowd rushed in and managed to snag a few tickets to the “Love Story” singer’s concert. However, when she checked out, she claimed that SeatGeek wouldn’t let her complete the purchase.
The site “won’t let me checkout,” Wallace said.
Then she claimed she was diverted several times to get new tickets and each time the ticket prices went up.
The mess left a void in their bank account and resulted in it being flagged as a potential scam.
“Waited in line for @taylorswift13 tickets for 8 hours today. And @SeatGeek has billed me more than 14 times for tickets I could never buy.” tweeted Wallace next to bank statements.
“So now my bank accounts (happened on multiple cards) are frozen, I’m broke, my accounts are overdrawn and I got NO tickets.”
Overall, Wallace said the tickets left her $9,000 in overdraft fees.
Wallace reportedly contacted SeatGeek to get her money back.
“After speaking to their live chat, they said none of the charges resulted in a ticket purchase and that I had to wait 3-5 business days to get a refund,” Wallace claimed.
According to SeatGeek, the charges should shake off after 24 hours, and she could still snag tickets during Friday’s public sale – which SeatGeek has postponed.
The Post has reached out to Swift, SeatGeek, and Wallace for comment.
Wallace said her bank “was very nice” and has since waived overdraft fees.
Swift issued a statement after Ticketmaster – which described the demand for tickets as “unprecedented” – canceled general sales of “Eras Tour” tickets.
“Well. It goes without saying that I’m extremely protective of my fans,” Swift shared on Instagram.
“It’s really difficult to entrust those relationships and allegiances to an outside entity and it’s excruciating for me to just watch failures happen without recourse.”
Tennessee’s Attorney General promised to investigate the cause of the website crash.
