Top San Luis official out after concert scam

Updated:

YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - A top official in San Luis has left his post after the border city discovered it had been scammed by a fake concert promoter that took $45,000 as an advance for a popular Mexican band's performance.

The Yuma Sun reports that Michael Trend stepped down as community development director under a mutual agreement with the city last week. City spokeswoman Karin Meza confirmed Trend's departure but provided no other details. Trend could not be reached for comment.

Trend served as vice president of a city-related organization that had been trying to bring the Mexican rock band Mana to San Luis.

But the well-known band never showed up and city officials now say the city and the corporation were the victims of a scam.
