Pensions

Have you been contacted out of the blue to free up your pension to reinvest?

If so it might be a scammer wanting to invest your pension into some very high risk investments!

You can check if the person or company contacting you is on the Financial Services Register or call the Financial Conduct Authority on 0800 111 6768.

Been contacted by your bank?

Your bank will never ask you to confirm your full 16 digit card number, your security number or your security answers

If you believe that you are speaking with a scammer hang up and report the incident to the non emergency police number - 101 and your bank.

Did you know...?

Scammers can hijack phone lines. If you think you’re being targeted, hang up the phone, wait five minutes and then call your bank directly.
