The International Cricket Council (ICC) has fallen victim to an internet scam and is thought to have been defrauded to the tune of more than $2.5 million.
Officials from the international governing body’s Dubai headquarters declined to comment, however, Cricbuzz has learned that a probe has been opened into the incidence of phishing from a source in the United States.

ICC Duped Of $2.5 Million
As the ICC officials are currently working with US law enforcement, they are keeping quiet about the problem, but it has been discovered that the total sum of $ 2.5 million is the consequence of several incidents of being duped. It exposes the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and his department in ICC’s Dubai headquarters.
For a full member like the BCCI, $ 2.5 million is not a large sum, but the magnitude of the loss is comparable to four times the money an Associate member with ODI status receives from the International Cricket Council each year.

A “Jamtara” has happened with the International Cricket Council (ICC). 🤦🏾
For those who can’t get the reference, “Jamtara” is an exceptionally good series on Netflix that deals with the “phishing” menace.
You must watch it, if you haven’t already. : )
