Information from the FCA Website


Investment scams can look and sound believable, with smooth-talking salespeople, slick websites or sophisticated brochures and prospectuses. This can make it hard to tell them apart from genuine investment opportunities. But there are ways to spot and avoid scams.

It might be an opportunity to invest in shares, property or rare goods, with the promise that the returns will be high and the risks to your money are low or non-existent. But generally speaking; the bigger the proposed return, the greater the risk.

If you would like to check a website that seems suspicious (maybe it just gives you a slightly off feeling?) you can use this resource from the NCSC.

Remember: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
