Exclamation Scam Alert

Scam Alert

This is a warning that there has been a very recent case of a spoof email being sent to a club treasurer supposedly from the chairman to transfer funds / make a payment. Due to the good practice of the treasurer to ask for paperwork to support the transfer it never went through. But this is a heads up that fraudsters are willing to put a little bit of time into putting names and email addresses together to commit fraud, and treasurers acting on good faith are probably an easy target for this type of scam if double checks aren't always made.
