Beware of web scams
Product shortages have made many markets vulnerable to exploitation, and charitable gaming is no exception. It has come to our attention that fraudulent websites are selling pull tabs and possibly other items to individuals who later discover the sites are fake. Over the past month, several people have reported to us that they attempted to buy pull tabs online, but they never received the product even though their payment was accepted. They now have no way to contact the sellers or recoup their money. In fact, some of these website scams have used LBC’s phone number in the contact information and our policy language to make the site appear legitimate.
In light of this information, use caution when buying from unknown websites or companies. Also, your charitable gaming license requires you to purchase regulated supplies ONLY from a licensed supplier, so if you cannot verify a supplier’s license in your state, you should not purchase gaming supplies from that entity. Visiting LancasterBingo.com or contacting your LBC sales rep are always the safest ways to purchase your pull tabs.

Please know that Lancaster Bingo Company LLC follows state requirements for licensing and selling pull tab and other regulated games. Our website limits purchases of pull tabs to customers who meet specific criteria.
Remember, if you encounter a website that seems suspicious, does not follow licensing procedures and does not welcome open communication with customers, be aware that the site may be a scam to get your money without providing the items you paid for.
