BEWARE OF A SCAMMER CLAIMING TO INVITE PLAYERS TO PLAY FOR A TEAM CALLED 'RED WOLVES'.

You may have received a message through Europlayers on an email from someone making a "hard to believe" offer to play in the UK for a team called the Red Wolves. THIS IS A TOTAL SCAM!

He even created a fake website which looks very similar to the (real) website of the Edinburgh Wolves (which is a real team).

Please warn your friends about him by putting this article on Facebook (click on the Facebook 'Like' button in top right corner).

Ask yourself why would someone ask you to pay a processing fee of a few hundred dollars if they're planning to pay you $5,000/month (or more)?

This person is using every possible means to steal your money and your identity!!! He is targeting athletes by making an unbelievable deal such as $10,500 a month. He asks for a few hundred dollars up front (supposedly to do all the necessary paperwork) and a copy of your visa or passport. He has even designed a contract that looks legitimate.

More recently he has asked some players to pay for their flight to the UK telling them they would be reimbursed on arrival. The trick is that the tickets have to be bought through his "agent". Of course if the player sends some money to the agent, he will never hear back from them!

He has scammed coaches and players alike. He does not own teams anywhere. He is a total fraud and all he wants is your money and your visa. Despite our efforts - we have blocked him and removed all email addresses from your profiles, he keeps finding ways to contact you. Please notify us when he does.

Coaches please also beware. He is using several different identities to have you contact the players. Please do your homework. He might contact you under a different name.

Get in touch with Europlayers to verify the existence of teams and leagues before you do anything. He cannot reach the players himself to commit the fraud so he uses coaches to find players and send them to him.

Remember, you do not need a visa to travel to Europe. And you NEVER have to send money in advance. He is lying to you. He is stealing your money and stealing your identity.

Remember, there is absolutely no truth to anything he says. We have sent out warnings to our members before, but he is relentless and has actually threatened us for blocking him.

Be vigilant!! If an offer seems way too good to be true, trust your instincts. It is not legitimate.

Please warn your friends about him by putting this article on your Facebook wall!
