Fraud Victims Say They Could Have Been Scammed at the Fair

Posted: Updated:

One couple said they noticed about $500 worth of fraudulent charges on their bank statement. They believe their information could have been stolen at the Tulsa State Fair.

Mardi and Tommy Gray said they noticed charges to McDonalds, Home Depot, gas stations, and others on their statement just days after they visited the fair.

"It was just kind of a coincidence that it started right after the day after we went to the fair," said Tommy Gray. "It started continuously through that week."

The Grays cannot prove the scam started at the fair, but they said the fair was the only place "out of the ordinary" they visited recently.

Some of the charges were made in San Antonio and Florida.

Police said sometimes out of state business interactions can be concerning.

"Anytime that events come into town, you're going to bring people from out of state and they may have different machines or bring in their own machines," said Officer Jillian Roberson.

A fair representative said most of the food vendors accept cash only but that many commercial vendors accept cards. She said they have not received any reports of scams.

The Grays reached out to Channel 8 via our Facebook page. They want to encourage viewers to check their bank statements regularly to ensure they are not victimized.

If you think you've been the victim of credit card fraud, call the Tulsa County Sheriff's Detective Division at (918) 596-9133.
