Jackie Jayne couldn't just “Shake it Off” when she realized she was about to become the victim of a scam.
A post appeared on her aunt's Facebook page offering up Taylor Swift tickets to anyone who wanted to buy them.
Jayne said she was interested right away for her and her children. She even booked the flights while texting on Facebook with who she thought was her aunt.
“We were talking personal, about my kids and my family, and she said Cash App or PayPal and I said, ‘This has got to be wrong,’” Jayne says.
Jayne then called her aunt on the phone and they both realized the aunt and uncle's social media accounts had been hacked, and scammers were trying to get her money.
The $400 tickets didn't exist. Luckily no money transfers were made so there's no “Bad Blood” between the family.
Jayne is hoping it is not a “Cruel Summer” for people potentially purchasing Taylor Swift tickets.
