Fake Farm Show Solicits Money From Vendors.

by Alex Lloyd Gross

The Winter Farm show is said to run from January 6 and 7 , 2024. It is said that this show will take place at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center. only it is not. Anyone that says different is a liar. Anyone that is soliciting money for vendors is scamming them and no such event will take place. That did not stop someone from creating an event that will not take place on social media and then taking money from businesses.

Attorney General Michelle Henry is investigating the people behind this to determine who they are and where they are putting the money sent to them.

“Scammers are creative in their endeavors to prey on people to make a profit,” Attorney General Henry said. “It is frustrating to see a scam like this surface and potentially tarnish a longstanding attraction event like the Pennsylvania Farm Show. Do not allow yourselves to be fooled: do your research before signing paperwork or sending payment.”

Consumers with questions, or who feel they may have been victims of this scam, may submit a complaint with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, Bureau of Consumer Protection by visiting the website, https://www.attorneygeneral.gov/submit-a-complaint/scams-complaint/ or by calling the office at 1-800-441-2555.
