Each time, the strategy is the same: via video and e-mail to the child’s illness and request for a jersey. Each time, the younger one is a supporter who has recently been forced to resign.
“We, he explained to us that he came from Beaumont-sur-Oise, explained Parisian Maxime Mallovery, CM of Ois Club. We have discussed the possibility of him coming to start the home match against Laval. “
The gift of assembling at an address in the city of La Garde. But not directly with this procession or those who in return presented themselves as his parents. But in Lionel and Stephanie, this lie is unknowingly involved.
? I received the same video from his parents in January, but Lucas had a heart condition and he came from Rouen, he had leukemia and he came from Borg n Brace.

On Wednesday evening, Borg Peronas’ communications manager shared a screenshot of the e-mail exchange with the child’s family on Twitter. The email comes from an email address with the mother’s name and last name. His postal address can also be seen in the text.
But if the parcels arrive at his house, he does not write the messages. They are handed over to Lionel and Stephanie, despite their involvement. “We are victims of identity theft,” he explained Parisian Lionel. My wife received abusive messages and death threats on Messenger because people thought she was responsible for the scene. But it is wrong. “
I’m sure the same for us. It was a different version. https://t.co/WsG4pcoPMn

“I had a big suspicion.”
The child’s father, a former neighbor of Lionel’s, took the parcels from him after asking his permission. “I know he’s a collector of football shirts, I accepted without a second thought, still says Parisian Lionel. I had a big suspicion a month ago when a package [au nom de l’enfant de mon ancien voisin] Arrived at my house. Since this is my nephew’s first name, I brought it to him. When I opened my brother-in-law’s package, we realized that it was not for him. Inside, there was a Versailles club shirt with a message: You have the strength, the ability to fight disease. I think it’s weird, because Laurent’s son is not sick, he only has pain in one ankle. “
With CM@ AJA , I have this dad’s number and we will ask for the jersey to be dismissed otherwise we will start the legal process. We can’t let it go, especially since I’m sure there were other clubs / players.

“I launched this call on the networks to stop this scandalous incident, this Thursday, on RMC Sport, signaling the warning of Burg Peronas. What is shocking is the attitude of the parents. Everyone supported the child, which is clearly being manipulated.”
It deletes all tweets
A successful bet for the communications manager who contacted the child’s father and asked him to return the jersey … “Otherwise we will take legal action. We can’t let it go, especially since I’m sure other clubs / players got twisted.”
This Thursday morning, he deleted all the tweets shown to the child, as well as exchanging emails with his mother, where anyone could read the name used, as well as the email addresses of the heroes of this sick story.
