Lazio have been hit by an online scam that saw the club send a payment of €2million, intended for Stefan de Vrij's former club Feyenoord, to fraudsters.

The Serie A club have been paying for the Holland international in instalments since his arrival in 2014 and had one more to make this year.

However, a convincing email purporting to be from the Eredivisie club, saw them send the funds to a bogus bank account.
The convincing correspondence reportedly had the appearance of any other email from Feyenoord, including club badge, however the IBAN number had been changed to reroute the money.

Lazio only found out after being informed by the Eredivisie club that they did not receive the transfer, and police are now looking into the incident, with the money already traced to a Dutch bank.

The Italians are not the first club to fall for a scam this season, with Hamilton scammed out of nearly £1m when one of their senior executives was caught by a vishing scam.
