Don’t Get Fouled by Ticket Scams During March Madness

Don’t Get Fouled by Ticket Scams During March Madness

(Lake Havasu City, AZ – March 16, 2017) Large sporting events, such as March Madness, draw massive crowds with consumers looking to score a ticket to their favorite game. Considering the high desirability of these tickets, fans will often have to resort to the secondary resale market. Scammers take advantage of fans looking for great deals by capitalizing on tickets that may not even exist. Before printing brackets and mapping out a schedule, know what to look for when purchasing highly desirable tickets. Better Business Bureau (BBB) offers tips to avoid buying fake tickets and missing out on a great game.

To avoid ticket scams during March Madness, BBB shares tips for buying tickets:

  • Consider the source. Know the difference between a professional ticket broker (a legitimate and accredited reseller), a ticket scalper (an unregulated and unlicensed ticket seller), and a scammer selling fraudulent tickets.

  • Buy from secure sites.  Use secure sites such as StubHub.com, SeatGeek and Vivid Seats for second-hand purchases. When buying online, look for the lock symbol and/or an “s” in “https:” to make sure a secure connection is in place before sharing payment information. Don’t click on email links or online ads, as scammers often create web sites that look very similar to well-known companies.

  • Know the refund policy. Understand the terms and conditions of the ticket seller. Sellers should disclose seat numbers and reference a seating chart. If tickets are not available immediately, seller should state an exact date and time when they will be shipped or ready for pickup.

  • Use a credit card. If possible, use a credit card to purchase tickets. Most credit cards offer additional protection and recourse should there be a problem with a purchase. Wire transfers and cash purchases are hard to track and recover if tickets turn out to be fraudulent.

  • Don’t fall for flashy ads. Online searches will likely result in advertisements for cheap tickets. Use good judgment; some ads might be scams, particularly if prices are extremely low.

  • Verify tickets. For peace of mind, verify tickets before purchasing. Visit the arena where the event will be held and present tickets at “Will Call” (customer service) where they will be able to verify legitimacy.

When looking for trusted ticket sellers, visit bbb.org. In Arizona, there are seven BBB Accredited providers ready to help you find tickets.

NOTE: The National Association of Ticket Brokers is a BBB National Partner. We thank them for their assistance with this tip.

Celebrating a legend: Bob’s Birthday Breakfast set for March 25

A pancake breakfast to celebrate the 106 th birthday of Robert P. McCulloch, the founder of Lake Havasu City, is planned for March 25. Although McCulloch’s birthday is actually in May, he shouldn’t mind celebrating during a cooler time of the year.

The breakfast is from beginning at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of the Lake Havasu Museum of History, 320 London Bridge Road. Donations will be accepted to cover breakfast. In addition to pancakes, there will be mimosas, cake, a poker game and trivia.

A new attraction at the breakfast – a Museum Mystery Sale – has been added this year.

The museum is cleaning out its back room to gain some space and items suitable for sale will be offered to breakfast attendees.

McCulloch’s J2 Gyroplane will be on site for photo opportunities.

Bob’s Birthday Breakfast offers an opportunity not only to enjoy a pancake breakfast, but to also learn more about the amazing man who built Lake Havasu City from 26 square miles of barren desert. Admission to the museum is free during the breakfast.

For more information, call 928-854- 4938.

The Lake Havasu Museum of History will host Bob’s Birthday Breakfast March 25
from 8-10 a.m. It is a celebration for a man whose vision was boundless. Pictured here is one of
his iconic saddle oxfords in the museum exhibit recounting the building of the city.
Robert McCulloch’s J2 Gyroplane will be on display at Bob’s Birthday Breakfast at
the Lake Havasu Museum of History March 25. The history of the production of the J2 can be

Helpful Tax Information!


If you earned $53,505 or less last year, you could receive a larger refund if you qualify for the EITC. If you have three or more qualifying children, you could get a maximum credit of up to $6,269. Even if you don’t have children, it could mean up to $506 added to your tax refund.

Unlike most deductions and credits, the EITC is refundable. In other words, if you’re eligible, you may get a refund from the IRS even if you don’t owe tax. Last year, more than 27.5 million eligible workers and families received almost $66.7 billion in EITC; with an average EITC amount of more than $2,400.

IRS-certified volunteers at our VITA sites (contact River Cities United Way for details) can help you find out if you quality for EITC and help you prepare your taxes for free. There is also an online tool, the EITC Assistant, available on IRS.gov. You don’t need to guess about your eligibility – use the EITC Assistant to find out for sure. And, when checking your eligibility for EITC, don’t overlook other tax credits for which you may qualify.

Some refunds held until mid-February

A new law approved by Congress requires the IRS to hold refunds claiming the EITC and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) until February 15. By law, the IRS must hold the entire refund – even the portion not associated with EITC or ACTC. This change helps ensure taxpayers receive the refund they are owed by giving the agency more time to help detect and prevent fraud.

The IRS will begin releasing these refunds on February 15, but you shouldn’t expect to see them deposited into your bank accounts until the week of February 27 – assuming there are no processing issues with the tax return.

You can track the status of your refund with the “Where is my tax refund?” tool available on IRS.gov or the IRS2Go mobile app.

Victory for Lake Havasu: Boating Restrictions Lifted

Victory for Lake Havasu!

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Fully Withdraws Lake Havasu Boating Restrictions.

 

Lake Havasu City resident Ryder Bliss (pictured above) is a ten-year-old who had his favorite wakeboarding spot closed for no legitimate reason in May 2015 due to federal overreach from the Fish and Wildlife Service.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) announced that beginning on February 1, 2017, the ½ mile backwater no-wake restriction for Lake Havasu that was designated in May 2015 will be lifted:

“After nearly two years of tirelessly fighting back against an arbitrary and overreaching bureaucratic decision, Lake Havasu will once again be open for all users. Lifting the boating restrictions on the ‘Ryde Spot’ marks a complete victory for the countless stakeholders and community leaders who stood shoulder to shoulder with me and spoke out when the very livelihood of Lake Havasu City was threatened. This win sends a clear message to all federal agencies that we the people have real power when united behind a worthwhile cause. We will not stand for lawless, unilateral actions by rogue bureaucrats.

“I applaud the efforts of the many individuals who were instrumental in today’s victory including: Lake Havasu City Mayor Mark Nexsen; the Arizona Game and Fish Department; the Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce; U.S. Senator John McCain; Mohave County Supervisor Buster Johnson; the entire Bliss family including Nick, Jenni and my pal Ryder. Tip of the hat to Director Tuggle for finally seeing the light and listening to local stakeholders.

“As the new Refuge Manager takes over next month, the Lake Havasu community and I will remain vigilant to ensure that any future Compatibility Determination (CD) is enacted lawfully, allows for multiple-use and is developed using a bottom-up approach that keeps Lake Havasu open for business. I couldn’t be more excited about today’s victory and can’t wait to join Ryder Bliss for a day on the Reservoir.”

Congressman Gosar is very appreciative to everyone that played an important role in this effort
