Pescara blast Venezuela player scam

Italian Serie B side Pescara have been made aware of a scam in Venezuela in which young footballers are being offered a trial with the club for a fee.

A statement on the Italian club's official website says no such agreement with representatives in South America exists and that they are taking action against the fraudsters, who are using the club's name and reputation for personal gain.

"In recent days, we have been made aware, thanks to a Venezuelan journalist, that in Latin America, there is some fraudulent activity using the name of Pescara Calcio," read the club statement. "Hundreds of people have been tricked into believing that they can send young players (for a fee) to play for our club.

"They have produced false documents, press releases and interviews, setting up false profiles on Facebook and organising events to promote their initiative, using our logo to cause damage to our club and the families and youngsters who dream of becoming footballers.

"Pescara affirm that we have not asked anybody to recruit young players in Venezuela or in other areas of Latin America and announce that we are going to file an official complaint."
