The scalpers are at it again! This time, the victims are ARMYs who failed to purchase BTS’ “Love Yourself” Singapore concert tickets.
Tickets for the famous K-pop boy band went on sale last Saturday (27th October). Unsurprisingly, it sold out in less than 3.5 hours. Although One Production Singapore announced that 50,000 tickets were sold, the ticket madness continued on social media.
Several netizens have posted screenshots of BTS concert tickets allegedly owned by scalpers and resellers. An ARMY also posted screenshots of ticket prices on StubHub – an online ticket exchange company. “Love Yourself” CAT 1 tickets are worth S$348, but some scalpers resold it for more than S$12,000 at StubHub! That’s how many months worth of salary? We’ll let you to the math.
There were also several buyers that shared that there were loopholes that apparently allowed scalpers to skip the queue and purchase more concert tickets immediately! A few desperate fans were willing to fork out extra cash to scalpers. Sadly, they were scammed.

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) is currently working on catching scalpers and cancelling their tickets. If you come across scalpers and scammers, don’t hesitate to report them to Live Nation, One Production and Sports Hub.
BTS’ “Love Yourself” concert is scheduled to take place in National Stadium on 19th January 2019.
