Request your Free Guide!

In a world where financial fraud and investment scams are rife, every investor needs to understand the potential signs something is not as it should be.

These scams and schemes are designed for one purpose – to extract your money, with no hope of recovery.

Within our industry we have seen a sharp rise in investment scams internationally.  From Pensions to Crypto Currency, over the last 12 months alone and as a result of Covid restrictions and the population as individuals adjusting to ‘online living’, the Met Police Cyber Crime Prevention Team have confirmed that they have seen an increase in excess of 80% as fraudsters make the most of the situation we all find ourselves in, more people than ever are being taken in by the latest tactics and we need to be on our guard.

With that in mind we have been focused on delivering a guide in partnership with the Metropolitan Police to help you recognise some of the classic signs for some of the common scams, we hope this will help you, your family, and friends, protect yourselves during these challenging times.

Visit the Metropolitan Police website with further advice on fraud & cyber crime.

As scams become more sophisticated, its important to be aware of the tactics that criminals will use to convince investors that they have access to beneficial products or profitable investments offering above-market returns.

Strategies that impact victims of fraud can take many forms, such as:

  • Social media advertising
  • Fake comparison sites
  • Fraudulent endorsements
  • Spam phone numbers, websites and email addresses
  • Impersonations
  • Unregulated direct marketing

We advise you to always seek professional guidance from a wealth management expert before taking up any unsolicited investment offer.
