2012 equestrian volunteers targeted by scam letter

A scam letter is currently circulating around the London 2012 volunteering programme; recipients receive either an email or a letter informing them that they have been shortlisted to be a “Ring Steward” at the London 2012 Games. It goes on to inform them that they will be contacted again in due course if selected.

The correspondence purports to be sent from ‘Rob Hoestra, Olympic Selection Committee Chairman’ at London 2012 and recipients are asked to call 0906 200 1036 for more details. This is a scam. If you receive this letter please do not provide any of your personal details or pay any money to the people who sent this email.

The Metropolitan police have been made aware .
