BAKERSFIELD, CA -- Bakersfield police say there's a potential fraud scheme taking place for an event that was supposed to happen May 17 at the Kern County Fairgrounds. 

Fair officials told police they had received a copy of an entry ticket for the event termed "LA Fundraiser" to included players from the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball.  The face value of the ticket is $12.00.  The event is not taking place, according to fair officials.  They say it's unclear if the tickets were being sold online or through social media.
