Club Scam

Warning for all Clubs

Over the last weekend the Guardian Newspaper published a story about how a Reading-based Junior club was duped out of £28,000, but Barclays was only able to recover £8.90.

It is important that Leagues and Clubs in our area and other volunteer groups and charities should beware, as it also appears that one of our local leagues may have been scammed.

Treasurers of community groups and small charities have been warned to be extremely wary after fraudsters used a fake email scam.

Here is the link to the story.
