Scams and swindles warning

People are increasingly being targeted by firms and individuals who use cold calling techniques to get your money. There are various types of scam currently being used by fraudsters.

If you make a payment to a firm which is not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), you will not be covered by the Financial Ombudsman Scheme or the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) if things go wrong and could lose your money. All firms authorised by the FCA are listed on the FCA Register.
