Deputy Calkins responded to the District 3 South office and contacted R-1 and R-2 regarding possible fraudulent activity that occurred at the Volusia County Fairgrounds. Both advised they saw a flyer online that advertised The Florida Outdoor Mega Show and Seafood Festival. They paid deposits for the show and purchased inventory in preparation for the upcoming show, which was set to occur on June 17 and 18, 2017. Both parties advised the event did not take place and they were not given proper notice of the cancellation. Both parties felt they were deceived by the promoter due to the promoter accepting deposits and not securing the venue. Further investigation will be required by District II.

Deputy Calkins completed an informational report pending further investigation.

R-1 Riley, Karen (W/F 12/11/1946) 1014 Nash Loop Villages, FL

R-2 Mathis, Robin (W/F 04/05/1964) 111 N. Rowan Avenue Spencer, NC
