It has come to the attention of the IRB that a person or persons who appear to be based in Nigeria have been operating an internet scam targeted at Rugby players and coaches seeking positions abroad.
The scam involves players and coaches being requested to send money to a bank account in respect of visas and playing licences at rugby clubs and/or academies which do not exist or are being misrepresented.
Police in various countries have been alerted.
The IRB would urge all players and coaches to verify the bona fides of clubs and/or academies prior to applying for positions and to exercise caution if requested to transfer money in such circumstances.
