Fraudsters target Cricket clubs

Northants Recreational Cricket has become aware of a scam currently being aimed at cricket clubs within our and surrounding counties. It involves fraudsters setting up fake email accounts in the name of senior committee members at the club, then using these accounts to ask the club treasurer to transfer amounts of club funds to an external bank account.

We warn clubs in general, and treasurers in particular, to be especially vigilant.

Any clubs who think they may have bee the target of this scam are encouraged to report it to the police using the following link:
