PRESCOTT ARIZONA The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of a fraudulent website masquerading as the Prescott Frontier Days, and others, selling rodeo tickets for the upcoming “World’s Oldest Rodeo” season. On April 12, 2023, YCSO responded to the report from a local resident who fell victim to this scam. This fraudulent website: www.ticketsales.com/prescottfrntier which re-routed the ticket purchase to Ticket-Center.com and charged this unsuspecting victim $466.00 for two rodeo tickets. These websites are currently being screened by the Better Business Bureau due to recent patterns of similar consumer complaints. The victim submitted a claim to her bank to dispute the charges and make them aware of the scam.
The Prescott Frontier Days website worldsoldestrodeo.com is the only authorized site to purchase rodeo tickets for the World’s Oldest Rodeo. All attempts to purchase tickets elsewhere could result in fraudulent activity or schemes. The message below is displayed on their tickets page: “This website is the ONLY authorized site to buy rodeo tickets. Please DO NOT buy tickets from any other website, as they are not legitimate!!*"
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office urges all residents to be aware of fraudulent websites and urges them to only purchase their rodeo tickets from the official Prescott Frontier Days website. Anyone with questions or concerns should contact local law enforcement for assistance.
