Hunterdon Sheriff Warns Of Fairground Vendor Social Media Scam
Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred W. Brown has issued a scam warning about fraudulent claims on social media regarding a series of nonexistent craft fairs and vendor booths at the county Fairgrounds in East Amwell.

Sheriff Brown said, “We are warning the public to beware of these scams. After researching the social media advertised events, at the behest of the County Parks Division, our team determined that the advertisements for the Autumn, Thanksgiving and Christmas Fairs at South County Park are illegitimate.

The claims on social media are false and none of these events have been planned at the county’s Fairgrounds.”

Lanza reported at the Board’s meeting October 5th.

Lanza, the Commissioner Board’s liaison for Public Safety, said, “Fighting fires is an extremely dangerous job, whether the firefighters are part of a paid force or volunteers, like most of ours here in the county. The national memorial reminds us of that fact, and I am joined by my colleagues on this Board in expressing our admiration for and thanks to those who charge into harm’s way to protect the rest of us.”
