BTS is coming to Singapore in January 2019.

Korean boyband BTS coming to S’pore on Jan. 19, 2019

And the Police has already come out to warn against potential scalpers.

S’pore Police Force reminds BTS A.R.M.Y. to beware of scammers. Not Today.

And how right they were to worry.

BTS tickets were recently put on sale on Saturday.

According to The Straits Times, they were sold out within four hours.

It seems that some of those tickets were sold to people who didn’t want to see BTS, but just want to make a quick buck.

Flaunting the tickets

And here are the ridiculous prices that were allegedly being flaunted on Stubhub, a site that sells tickets to events all over the world.

However, these tickets do not seem to be available on the site now, but the highest prices are still quite excessive.

Even the more conservative resellers were significantly above the highest-priced original tickets, which went for S$348.

The cheapest tickets, when bought from the original retailer, cost S$88.

What’s worse was that a few scalpers even defended their actions.

Apparently her industriousness should be rewarded.

With another taunting the BTS fans to “cry all they want”.

Hmm.
