IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PLAYERS AND COACHES! THE SCAMMER IS BACK AGAIN!

You may have received a message on Facebook (or by email or by text message) from someone making a "hard to believe" offer to play in Spain or other European countries.

In return he is asking athletes to send some money through Money Gram, Western Union or equivalent for "insurance" or "administrative fees".


THIS IS A TOTAL SCAM!


This person is using every means possible to steal your money and your identity!!! He offers an unbelievable deal such as $5,000 a month. He asks for a few hundred dollars up front and a copy of your visa or passport. He has even designed a contract that looks legitimate.

He has scammed coaches and players alike. He does not own teams anywhere. Please let us know immediately. We have blocked him numerous times on Europlayers so now he is finding different ways to get to you.

Coaches please also beware. He is using several different identities to have you contact the players. Please do your homework. Get in touch with Europlayers to verify the existence of teams and leagues before you do anything.

Remember, you never have to send money in advance to be signed with a team (even if they say it's to pay for administrative fees, visas, etc). He is lying to you. He is stealing your money and stealing your identity.

More recently he has asked some players to pay for their flight to Europe 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!

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. If you have a doubt about a team, please contact us and we will confirm if the team is legit or not.

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

Hello all,
this is the actual Timor Brik. I reported this scam to Mark Levin at the NFPLA when a player contacted me about the fake email sent below.

You will notice the individual uses a fake version of my gmail address; and remember, no agent will ask you for money.
If you have any concerns, always verify your agent's credentials on the NFPLA website.

Good luck.

Wow that's crazy. I'm really looking for a place to play and I was so close to paying that money because I thought this was a chance of a life time. I'm glad I Google this because he would have hit me for alot. Thank you

Hi Delvin, you should simply ignore him. He's only interested in money. If you ignore him he will simply go away.

The same with me. Timor brick. He gave the "coach""" my number. The team was based in Spain, which I liked because I speak Portuguese, but for sum reason the coach sounded nothing like a Portuguese man, he also couldn't give me any info about the team. Mathew Boulger<<<< was the person who sent Timor my info
