The Financial Conduct Authority has a website dedicated to education and reporting of financial scams. There is a short quiz that tests your ability to pick out the scammer – worth a go if you think you are scam savvy, as you may be surprised!
It also has articles on how to report a scam if you think you have been a victim, and advice on how to avoid it.
It is a useful site if you have concerns or doubts over any website, email or firm. Obviously, if you are a client of ours and you are concerned, get in touch and we can help you decide whether something is a real opportunity or too good to be true – unfortunately, it’s usually the latter.
