 GRAND CASINOS ALERT PUBLIC ABOUT ILLICIT CASINO-TRIP BROKERS


Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Hopes Awareness Will Cause Abuses to Cease
 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Grand Casinos' Mille Lacs and Hinckley (Minn.) marketing management personnel hosted a press conference this morning at the Casinos' Plymouth, Minn. marketing offices to announce concerns about people posing as legitimate brokers for casino limousine trips. The bogus brokers collect money in advance from unsuspecting customers in return for limousine trips which don't exist, and for worthless food and cash coupons supposedly redeemable at the casinos.
 Among those available to answer questions from media persons attending the press conference were Jack Malisow, Casinos' vice president of marketing; Tim Bothof, Casinos' director of market development; and Barry ZeVan, Casinos' director of public relations.
 From a prepared statement, ZeVan expressed the Band's wish that "people who allegedly perpetrate fraudulent activities will be recognized, and their operations will cease." On behalf of the Band, and the casinos they operate, ZeVan urged the public to make reservations only through the casinos' direct phone numbers, at the casinos kiosks (in 5 Twin Cities Malls), at the Grand Casinos' Mall of America store, or with known and reputable limousine operators. If there are any questions about an operator or offer, the public is advised to call 1-800-4GROUPS.
 The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Indians are the owners of Grand Casinos Mille Lacs and Hinckley.
