Scam alert: Candy Land Circus might not be real

A scam is rolling into Fremont County ahead of next week's legitimate Shrine Circus. Riverton Police Capt. Eric Murphy said that posters have begun showing up around town for a "Candy Land Circus" talking about a show coming on Tuesday, June 28. This is not real, Murphy said. The posters have a number to call to purchase tickets; Murphy said someone will take your payment, but there will never be a Candy Land Circus. This is a scam that reportedly happens nationally, following the Shrine Circus tour. The scam reportedly popped up in Jackson this week, too. The real Shrine Circus is set for June 29 at the Fremont County Fairgrounds at 2 and 7:30 p.m. #county10 #news
