SIBU: An engineer in Kuching was cheated out of RM11,530 trying to buy tickets to the Taylor Swift concert in Singapore next year.
Sarawak police commissioner Datuk Mohd Azman Ahmad Sapri said on July 6, the 50-year-old engineer saw an advertisement on the Carousell website selling the pop star's concert tickets.
"As he was interested in attending the concert, he purchased three tickets at the price of RM11,530," he said.
On July 6 and July 7, he transferred the money as payment for the tickets to an account given to him by the suspect.
Datuk Mohd Azlan said the man realized that he had been cheated by the suspect when he could no longer contact him to claim the tickets.
Tickets for Swift's The Eras Tour, which has six shows at Singapore’s National Stadium on in March next year have been hotly contest since going up for sale last week.
