Fraud Warning for Cricket Clubs in Norfolk

Fraud Warning for Cricket Clubs in Norfolk
Clubs in Norfolk are being warned to be vigilant as scammers target cricket clubs.

Clubs across the country, including one that NCB are aware of in Norfolk, have been victims of attempts to defraud them of club funds.

The fraudsters set up a fake email address in the same name as the club's chairman. They then emailed the club treasurer and requested a large amount of money to be transferred to a bank account apparently to pay for cricket equipment. Luckily the club in Norfolk spotted that the email address was not the right one and no payment was made.

The ECB has confirmed that similar attempts have been made across the UK and they advise that clubs should report such requests to the police at https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

Please be careful about what information you make available online for the pubic to view.
