This evening I went to a meeting in Greenford to discuss what we are going to do next season with Acton Town. I thought that it was an informative meeting and we came away with some kind of idea what we are going to do next season.

I had been made captain until the end of the season and Jayson announced that I would remain captain next season. I knew it might put a few noses out of joint but I had no idea how many people had a problem with me being appointed captain.

I sat there absolutely stunned as almost everyone, apart from Daryl, voiced that they did not want me to remain as captain. I could not even get my brain into gear to argue my point I was that shocked and stunned. I sent Jayson a text offering to step down as captain if it would make life easier. But Jayson told me that he will be sticking with his decision to have me wear the armband next season.

When I got home I checked my emails and I saw an email confirming that I had just sent someone £200 via my PayPal account. I thought that this might be one of those scam emails I get from time to time (the ones that claim your account has been flagged, or the ones from banks you dont even have accounts with) but when I checked my PayPal account my blood ran cold as almost all my money had been cleaned out.

I had been saving that up for my holiday in July and within the space of a minute someone had managed to get into my supposedly secure account and had transferred £200.00. Whoever it was must have a conscience as he left me the sum of £7.11.

I immediately reported it to PayPal who are looking into it.

I asked around on Digital Point forums and the news is not good. Apparently it can take at least a month to get this kind of thing sorted out and I will be incredibly lucky to get ANY of that money back as it has probably been spent by now and scammers vanish pretty quickly.

Looks like I am going to have to start from scratch again. 🙁
