Exhibitor Alert: Stabling Scam
World Equestrian Center Exhibitors Encouraged to Be Aware and Follow Stabling Policies
WILMINGTON, Ohio – October 3, 2019 – The World Equestrian Center has been made aware of an industry-wide phone scam where criminals posing as horse show staff are trying to steal credit card information from exhibitors by using fake feed and bedding order forms, or by asking for personal payment information over the phone.
We want to assure our exhibitors that we will NEVER call you and ask for payments prior to a horse show. Please follow published stabling policies and do not give your credit card over the phone to anyone claiming to be from our horse show.
