The Welsh Rugby Union is warning clubs across Wales to beware of a financial scam aimed at getting personal details and bank account information from individuals.
The WRU has been alerted by Nantymoel RFC which received a letter which falsely claimed the named recipient had won an official Rugby World Cup 2011 themed sweepstake with a £1.7million prize.
It is a scam which the IRB originally sounded a warning about last year, but the letter to Nantymoel shows attempts are still being made to dupe rugby club members.
The IRB has alerted all unions of the scam and pointed out it does not operate and has never operated any form of sweepstake.
Nantymoel alerted the WRU through their Board member Aurwel Morgan who is now sounding a warning to all other clubs.
He said: "I am extremely grateful to Nantymoel for bringing this clear scam to our attention. It is vitally important that all our clubs and club members remain vigilant and do not fall into the trap of believing this appeal.
"The offer was made in a formal letter and it certainly appears to give the impression of being a valid document.
"The truth is it is a cynical attempt to procure money and the fact that Nantymoel received this letter recently means this scam is still active."
A pioneering strength and conditioning programme has been delivered to more than 8000 boys and girls at hub schools throughout Wales this season, helping to develop stronger, more flexible athletes for rugby and other sports.
