Fraud warning for Mayo fans
MAYO GAA chiefs have warned fans to beware the fundraising 'frauds' who are already attempting to piggy-back on the county's success in reaching All-Ireland minor and senior finals in the same year for the first time.
The county board revealed that "certain organisations" in Ireland and overseas are involved in the scam of pretending to raise funds for both squads, declaring: "These organisations are using the success of our teams to mislead our very loyal supporters into contributing financially, claiming that their funds will go towards the team training funds.
"Supporters should be aware that the only funds raised that go towards our team training funds are those raised under our Cáirde Mhaigheo fundraising umbrella," the statement adds.
"If anyone is unsure whether a fundraising activity is legitimately going towards the team training fund then please contact the Mayo county board or any officer of the executive."
