I would take the belt off and turn each pulley by hand to see if you feel undue resistance. And if the belt tensioner bearing is going, it can cause the belt to cross it and the previous and subsequent pullies in the rotation at an angle causing poor contact and fast wear. A seizing bearing on any other accessory or pulley will cause the belt to be dragged over the others by the rotating force of the crank. Good luck, and may it be something inexpensive !
