Alert: Fraud Targeting Soccer Clubs

It has been brought to our attention that there is a new scam targeting volunteer organizations wherein the perpetrators use email addresses off of an organization’s website and contacts the board from an address that appears to be the organization’s president’s.

The content of the emails are a request for financial assistance of a club expense to be reimbursed later.  BC Soccer recommends informing your board of this scam and that personal transfers to cover club expenses will not be requested by email.
