Don’t bother complaining to the BBB, they have 53 complaints and an F Rating, already.

Rather [file a complaint with the Tucson, Arizona Attorney General’s Office](https://consumer-complaint.azag.gov/publiccomplaint/begin.aspx) if your money is not refunded.

Oro Valley/Tucson AZ is where ‘Bar Crawl Unlimited/AZ Food Festivals/Kick N’ Dirt Entertainment is located.

    Amazing write-up!

    It was kind of interesting to watch this playout in real time. I have a pretty good bullshit detector and noticed the event getting shared around on Facebook. After maybe 20 minutes of scoping the details out it was obvious this was a scam.

    The way in panned out in Lafayette, LA was the bars were left dealing with the questions and in the end didn’t mind much because they saw increased sales from people gathering at the hot spots.

     

    It comes down to the simpletons on Facebook who continue to share things and sign up for these events with no prior research into what it entails.
