Just in from work and saw this on my club fan site.

WTF has happened for that level of loss to come about without internal controls flagging an issue?

Sincerely hope that it does not jeopardise the existence of the club.

I hope this isn't too damaging for Accies, that's a lot of money. Thankfully the sum involved at Hearts  looks to be much less, possibly £85k.

A statement from Tynecastle confirmed the Edinburgh club had also been hit.

It said: "Heart of Midlothian can confirm it was the subject of an internet fraud earlier this year.

"The matter is now part of an active police investigation and therefore no further comment will be made."

 

How early? Why the apparent delay? Could other clubs like Accies not have been warned?

Why on earth do Accies have £750k sitting in an account? And why hadn't they noticed it?

I doubt any club other than Celtic have £750k kicking about!

They said because they don’t have loans etc to pay, they had created a nest egg for training facilities, Stadium works and the likes. 

No point spending it just for the sake of it, so they just saved it.

They just saved it in a current account? Surely you'd put that in a higher interest account that was locked for a year or two and got a higher return.

As I said, strange for a club to have that kind of money kicking about.

Has their not always been a bit of innuendo about Hamilton’s accounting?

More to do with their shady Directors i believe

I don’t know, I’m just a Sparkie from Aberdeen with a bad credit rating, not an accountant from Hamilton in charge of a professional football club, you’d have to ask someone else that.

Im just passing on what I read :ok:
