Is this ‘investment’ actually a fraud?
I have had a call from someone offering an investment opportunity that seems almost too good to be true. I am a little tempted though. Should I be? FB, BERKSHIRE
The adage “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is” is as worth bearing in mind as it ever was.
Treat any cold callers hawking investments with extreme caution – the chances that they are genuine are negligible. Scams are becoming more and more sophisticated. Even alert people get caught out. See scamsmart.fca.org. uk for some useful tips.
