Tucson Police warn of scam

By Greg Gurule. CREATED Feb 6, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson police are warning about a criminal pretending to be from the Gem, Mineral and Fossil show who is ripping people off.  The scammer approached a man at the Chevron gas station on East Ajo this week and said he had racked up points in a game called "Raceway to Bluff." 

The victim was told he needed a few more points to win money and dished out hundreds of dollars for a prize that never existed.  The Gem Show says it is not sponsoring any such game.
