BEWARE UNSOLICITED PENSION CALLS
In the Autumn Statement, the Government announced that it wants to make pension cold calls illegal. Why? Because these calls are not only a nuisance, but also usually the work of scammers. Almost 11 million pensioners are being targeted annually by cold callers, with savers reporting estimated losses of almost £19 million to pensions scams between April 2015 and March 2016. If you get a call about your pension from someone you’re not expecting, hang up immediately. If you think you’ve been targeted by a scam, call The Pensions Advisory Service on 0300 123 1047. You should also report scams to Action Fraud at 0300 123 2040.
