Protecting yourself from scammers and fraudulent communications 

Scams have unfortunately become more commonplace, and the FCA has published useful guidance for shareholders on how to protect yourself. You can find it online at:  

We would suggest you also consider these useful tips to spot potential communications from scammers: 

  • scammers will usually call out of the blue, but contact can also come by email, text, or post; 
  • always be wary if you are contacted unexpectedly, pressured to act quickly, or give personal financial details, or promised returns that sound too good to be true; and
  • never give out financial information, including details of your investments, account, or credit card details, unless you are certain who you are dealing with.
