There is someone out there pretending to be me, and emailing people in the lacrosse world. I don’t know what’s going on here, but it’s not on the up and up, and there is a potential Connor Wilson Lacrosse Scam going down right now using my name, and I’m not thrilled about it. While I care about my reputation, I am much more concerned that people out there might get ripped off.
Please share this post so no one is fooled!
Connor Wilson Lacrosse Scam
I was recently forwarded an email from a lacrosse community member I’ve known for a year or two, and in the email he forwarded, I had offered to give his program 50 sets of sticks if he sent me info on his program.
Here is the problem… it wasn’t my email, I never sent that note, and I have no idea who did.
The email was sent from firstname.lastname@example.org and they even provide a cell phone number with a Boston area code that is VERY similar to mine. I have received scam calls from this number before. But again, it is NOT mine.
Here is the text of the email:
I want to see the lacrosse community grow, and do so together. That’s what LaxAllStars is all about. I may never find out who is pretending to be me out there, but I want people to know what’s going on. Grow The Game is real, and not something that should be used to scam people, but that day has come. BEWARE!
I will update this post with any further info I receive, and if you know something, say something. I would greatly appreciate it. So far I only know of one instance, and I am not worried about myself, but my fear is that others may have been contacted as well, and I don’t want anyone to get duped.
