If you can still fall for a scam like that in this day and age you deserve to lose your money, everyone knows they should just hang up the phone and call the bank themselves
You obviously know nothing about how sophisticated these scams can be.
Pretending to be known contacts in your bank, stealing confidential information and using it to establish credibility, hacking into your phone system so that you think you're "hanging up the phone and calling the bank" but you're still on the line to the fraudsters, etc, etc.
Plenty of reputable businesses fall for this stuff all the time. It's possible someone at Accies has been stupid, but much more likely an ingenious deception has been executed. I've heard ~£850k over 9 transactions, but it's just a rumour. We don't know all the facts, and may never know, or at least not for a long time, but pointing the finger at Board members or employees of the club is frankly childish.
