The Bakersfield Police Department is making the public aware of a potential fraud scheme taking place in Bakersfield.
On Friday, May 9, 2014, Jeannie Burton of the Kern County Fair Grounds informed the Bakersfield Police Department that she had received a copy of an entry ticket for an event purported to take place on Saturday, May 17, 2014, at the Kern County Fair Grounds.
The ticket states the event, termed “L.A. Fundraiser” will include players from the “NFL”, “NBA” and “MLB.”
The face price of the ticket is $12.00. Burton informed us these tickets are fraudulent and this event is not taking place at the Kern County Fair Grounds on May 17, 2014.
She has advised the public to not purchase these tickets if you are approached by somebody selling them. Burton received this ticket second hand and she was unable to relay how the sales were being made but did know they were not being made online or through social media.
Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Bakersfield Police Department at (661) 327-7111.
