Important Notice about email scams

Watch out for those tired old ‘substitution’ email scams, they are doing the rounds again.

What happens is that you get an email from someone pretending to be an officer of your club or your Federation and they are asking you for some kind of help, financial of course. The latest one targetted our Federation President.

Report all such emails by forwarding them to:  report@phishing.gov.uk
