It is a sad fact that may people are currently losing all of their pension fund as a result of fraudsters. To stay safe you need to use an FCA regulated company - like ours.
But even if you don’t want to use us, please follow the simple steps below to make sure you don’t lose your pension fund. How do you make sure your pension fund remains safe and most importantly remains yours?
You have no doubt come across many stories in the press, and on radio and TV, about pension fraudsters offering customers such things as free pension reviews and the ability to release money from their pension fund before the age of 55. While the customer may see a token amount of money returned to them to allay their suspicions, the long term consequence of this action is that someone walks away with the lion’s share of their pension fund.
We have just had to break the sad news to a customer that rather than having a pension fund of £35,000, it has all been taken by crooks and therefore they have absolutely nothing !!
It isn’t just a risk for the under 55s. The over 55s who can legally take a lump sum from their pension are also targets for the fraudsters. Many customers like to make their own financial decisions and feel they can get the service they want, without paying for advice.
Therefore the question has to be, how you can differentiate between a legitimate fully regulated business such as ours, and a bunch of fraudsters ?
The good news is there are many common sense actions you can take, as well as some very simple checks to ensure you don’t give your hard earned money to undeserving, unregulated criminals.
