Potential Fraud Threat
Submitted By Beth Wise on Fri 03 29, 19
It has come to the attention of the OMHA that members of Local Minor Hockey Associations may have been contacted by individuals misrepresenting themselves as Local MHA Board Members and indicating that the player has been identified by the NHL for future development and consideration. 

The message included reference to securing future exposure for the child in hockey. The anticipated next step typically is a request for money/financial information with a view to participation at a non-existent event/opportunity. This has been reported to the local Police Service Fraud Unit and is being investigated. This is not limited to hockey and similar fraudulent schemes have been reported in other Minor Sport Organizations.

It is important that organizations and their members remain vigilant and report any suspicious communications in order to avoid being victimized.
