How to protect yourself from Financial Investment fraud:
❎ Investment opportunities: Don’t be rushed into making an investment.
❎ Remember, legitimate organisations will never pressure you into investing on the spot.
❎ Seek advice first: Before making significant financial decisions, speak with trusted friends or family members, or seek professional independent advice.
❎ FCA register: Use the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) register to check if the company is regulated by the FCA. If you deal with a firm (or individual) that isn’t regulated, you may not be covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) if things go wrong and you lose your money.
If you think that you may have been a victim of this or any other type of scam, then contact your Bank immediately, which you can do by calling 159 and report it to Action Fraud or call 0300 123 2040
