It has been reported that Arsenal have moved to warn young players of academy scams.
In a statement, Arsenal declared:
“It has come to our attention that various individuals and organisations are contacting people offering false training and employment opportunities at Arsenal Football Club and, in particular, targeting those hoping to join the Arsenal Youth Academy.
“We take this matter extremely seriously, and we are currently working with the appropriate legal authorities to put a stop to this fraudulent scheme. By making supporters aware of this, we hope to avoid and ultimately prevent people falling victim to this scam.”
