More than a million virtual queue numbers were issued within the first 10 minutes of the sale, The Straits Times (ST) reported.

The presales were open exclusively to UOB cardholders.

It didn’t take long for scalpers to rear their ugly heads once tickets for Swift’s upcoming gigs at the National Stadium went on sale.

A search for “Taylor Swift” on Carousell brings up countless listings for tickets from across every category.

One person who managed to get their hands on four VIP 2 tickets is letting them all go at S$8,888.

For comparison, they cost S$728 each on the official ticketing website, which comes up to S$2,912 for four.

There’s also a pair of VIP 1 tickets going for S$6,000 — more than double the original price of S$1,228 each.

This individual saw fit to charge S$2,000 for each of the four Cat 1 tickets they managed to score.

That’s a markup of S$1,652, not including the ticketing fees.

Even cheaper tickets are going at exorbitant rates. One seller started a bid for two Cat 5 tickets, which are usually worth S$168 each, at S$320.

At the time of writing, the current bid for both tickets stands at S$700, hinting at the demand for resale tickets.

Virtual queue numbers & access codes also for sale

Aside from the tickets, there were also people putting up their virtual queue numbers for sale, and later their general sale access codes.

With queue numbers stretching over a million, a position in the five-figure range and under was considered a hot commodity.

This is probably why this person thought their queue number 11,063 was worth S$800.

Some folks were even shameless enough to try and sell their queue numbers that were in the hundreds of thousands.

Unfortunately, MS News was notified that the UOB presale tickets were sold out at around 3pm.

Access to the general sales on Friday (7 July) requires a unique code, which is being sent to a limited number of fans who registered in advance by 28 June.

The registration was a way of filtering out potential resellers and ensuring the tickets went to the right people.

Unfortunately, scalpers ended up selling these access codes too, some for hundreds of dollars.

This Carouseller somehow managed to obtain 230 access codes and is selling them for S$25 each.

However, many of these listings may turn out to be scams or straight-up jokes.

As desperate as some of you might be to see Swift in concert, getting your tickets from scalpers is never a good idea.

Not only would you be supporting such an unethical practice, but there’s a high chance you could fall victim to a scam. You could also have your ticket declared invalid.

For those who are trying their luck for the general sale (and are actually planning to attend the concert), may the odds be ever in your favour.
