What if I receive unsolicited phone calls or mail about investments?
Over the last few years, a number of companies have become aware that their shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters which imply a connection to the company concerned. These are typically from overseas-based brokers (‘boiler rooms’) who target UK shareholders offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high-risk shares in US or UK investments, sometimes in exchange for ‘blue chip’ investments.
Those operating these boiler rooms are usually well-spoken, knowledgeable, very persistent, and extremely persuasive. A survey by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has reported that the average amount lost by investors is around £20,000, and not only novice investors have been duped in this way; many victims have been people with previous experience of investing or share dealing.
Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free reports about the company.
If you receive any unsolicited investment advice:
- Ensure you get the correct name of the person and organisation and record any other information they give you, e.g. telephone number, address etc.
- Check that they are properly authorised by the FCA before getting involved. You can check at www.fca.org.uk/register.
The FCA also maintains on its website a list of unauthorised overseas firms who are targeting, or have targeted, UK investors, and any approach from such organisations should be reported to the FCA so that this list can be kept up to date and any other appropriate action can be considered. Dealing with an unauthorised firm would render you ineligible to receive relevant payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
The FCA can also be contacted by completing an online form at www.fca.org.uk/consumers/protect-yourself/unauthorised-firms or, if you do not have access to the internet, on 0800 111 6768.
- Inform our Registrars on +44 (0)370 873 5866. While they are unable to investigate such incidents themselves, they will record the details, pass them on to the Company, and liaise with the FCA.
