Be ScamSmart. Find out how to protect yourself and avoid investment scams.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has released the new 'ScamSmart' campaign to advise potential investors how to recognise and avoid investment fraud.
James Fisher, and other companies, are aware that some shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters which imply a connection to the company concerned.
If it sounds too good to be true....it probably is.
Have you been
- Contacted out of the blue
- Promised tempting returns and told the investment is safe
- Called repeatedly, or
- Told the offer is only available for a limited time?
If so, you might have been contacted by fraudsters.
How to avoid share fraud
Report a scam
If you suspect that you have been approached by fraudsters please tell the FCA using the reporting form at www.fca.org.uk/consumers/report-scam-unauthorised-firm. You can also call the FCA Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768.
If you have lost money to investment fraud, you should report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at www.actionfraud.police.uk

Reject cold calls
If you've received unsolicited contact about an investment opportunity, chances are it's a high risk investment or a scam. You should treat the call with extreme caution. The safest thing to do is to hang up.
