Woman is caught up in Taylor Swift ticket drama, gets accused of stealing $700.


When this woman gets accused of scamming her friend, she asks Reddit:

'AITA for not paying my friend $700 that I allegedly owe her for Taylor Swift?'

My friend (23f) and I (24f) got tickets for the Taylor Swift Eras Tour 4/29 ATL show. She had received verified fan presale and bought two tickets for us at face value - $140 each. I paid her $140 in November when she bought the tickets. Fast forward to March, and I tell her I’ll no longer be able to make it to show and that I’ll sell her back my ticket and she can take whoever she wants. She said she didn’t care to go and that she would sell the tickets and we could both profit off of them.

She lists them on stubhub for $700 each, and someone offers to buy them. She gets worried that the buyer is a scammer and doesn’t feel comfortable transferring the tickets. She said she rather sell them to someone to we know. In April, I posted them on my Instagram for $500 each. They sell. I send her the $500 profit for her ticket and keep $500 for myself, and she transfers the tickets.

Unknown to me, she had been receiving stern phone calls + emails from stubhub about not transferring the tickets yet. I had no idea she accepted the sale in the first place. I didn’t find this out until after we sold the tickets to someone from Instagram. StubHub charged her $1400 in the end for not transferring the tickets. She’s expecting me to pay her $700 for this.

She has not been apologetic or taken any responsibility for her actions. It irritates me how she doesn’t feel bad about the whole situation. Of course I’ll give her the $360 profit from the $500 sale, but I don’t feel like it’s fair for me to pay for her mistake in the mismanagement of selling the tickets. I feel like I should keep my original $140 for the cost of the ticket, and she should cover the expenses of her mistake.

She is a very close friend of mine, and we were roommates all throughout college. I don’t want to ruin our friendship, but I also don’t want to pay for a mistake that was not my own. If I keep my $140 for the original ticket price and send her the $360 profit from my one ticket, it would net $540 loss for her.

Even if I do pay her $700, I would have to do it in monthly payments because I don’t have the money to send it to her all at once. Am I the asshole for not wanting to pay for half of her $1400 mistake??

Let's find out.

ESH because you sold the tickets for a markup and that's disgusting, you both majorly suck for that. Otherwise you are nta for not accepting responsibility for your friend's screw up, that's all on her and you're being generous giving her the $360. But you're still trash for that markup.

NTA regarding the conflict with your friend. But I don’t feel bad for either of you for getting mixed up and losing from a scalping effort. You tried to take advantage of real fans and you ended up being taken advantage of by the corporations.

YTA. You went over her head and sold the tickets when she had already sold them. You should have checked with her before listing them on your IG account. That being said, she f*d up and should pay back the $1400. She is the scammer.

Everyone's got an opinion on this one. What do YOU think?
