Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift ticket touts are guilty of £10m fraud

TWO internet touts who resold tickets worth millions of pounds to high-profile events, including concerts by Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift, have been found guilty of fraud in a ‘landmark’ trial.

Peter Hunter and David Smith — who traded as Ticket Wiz and BZZ — used multiple identities and computer bots to buy £4million worth of tickets over two-and-a-half years, a jury was told.
