BOULDER, Colo. — The city of Boulder is warning residents about a fake website that claims to offer registration for Boulder Parks and Recreation activities and classes.

The website, FindSportsNow.com, is believed to be posting city programs and offering registration through their site. “However, the city has no business relationship agreements with this entity,” said Parks and Rec. spokeswoman Jennifer Bray.

Instead residents should visit BoulderParks-Rec.org or contact a city Rec. center for program registration.

According to a memo from CPRA to parks and recreation departments around Colorado this week, the website “Findsportsnow.com has been listing several park and recreation agency programs, claiming to be a ‘one stop shop’ for registering for these sports programs. They are collecting personal information, including credit card numbers and charging a $2 ‘processing fee’ for each transaction. Their website claims they are then passing along this registration information to the host agency. THIS has NOT been the case in three instances we are aware of! Several of our CPRA Agencies have been notified by customers that they had registered through this website, only to find out they had been scammed.”

If you believe you may have registered for a City of Boulder recreation program through this website, please contact the Parks and Recreation department at 303-413-7270.
