The PFA have recently been advising players and parents who have been approached by persons advising they will assist in helping find a club or trials overseas.
We have since learned that unfortunately they have fallen foul to persons trying to scam players by pretending to be agents in order to receive your money. They may even forge documentation to ensure it looks like contracts with clubs/travel arrangements are in place for you.
We would encourage players and parents to remain vigilant.
