This scam has surfaced again

From an official of a club on the play-cricket system:

I am the treasurer of our club and I need to make you aware of a recent fraud that we have been the victim of, where fake email accounts have been made by persons pretending to be the president of the cricket club, and contacting the treasurer requesting an invoice be paid.

On 15th of June I received an email that appeared to be from the club president, asking me to pay an invoice; the email was very plausible and I had no reason to believe that I was dealing with anyone other than the president. Unfortunately I paid the invoice by bank transfer to then be made aware that the email address was in fact fake and the invoice a fraudulent request.

When looking at our club’s contact details on this web site it lists [name] as the president and myself as treasurer so it appears that they have taken those details, created a fake email account for the president of the club and requested funds direct from the treasurer.

Please can this be passed to all clubs who use this site and make them aware of this potential scam. The club has lost nearly £2000 so if this can be avoided by other clubs being aware, that would be great.

Please be careful; if you receive a message of this or a similar nature that purports to be from aclub, league or board official check the email address from which it originates is the one by which you 'know' them. If you have any doubts about the authenticity of the message then contact them direct by phone to make sure that it is a genuine request before making any payment

Playing Conditions for new SCL in 2019

Dear Club,
The Adult Leagues Group would like to know what our recreational cricketers want to see from the new league in terms of playing conditions and associated matters. Therefore, we have created a survey designed to obtain as much feedback as possible. The link below will take you to the survey, which should take about 5 minutes to complete and will be open until 13th August.


Over the next few days, the link will be posted on the league website, social media and e-mailed directly to all registered Play Cricket users, but please also disseminate this e-mail throughout your membership. That way, everyone in your Club can have their say in the future direction of recreational cricket.

The feedback received will be used to inform the proposals that will be voted on by Clubs at the AGM in October.

Kind Regards,
(on behalf of the Adult Leagues Group) Gary Stanley, 07775 933 311; www.sussexcricket.co.uk



Next possible committee meeting Thursday 13th September 2018 at 7.00 pm at Buxted Park
