Fraudulent or Scam Investments

Fraudsters and scams are becoming ever more sophisticated and more common. It’s important that people are aware of scam tactics that are often used to lure you into parting with your money under false pretences.

Oakwood Solicitors understands that being a victim of a scam can have a huge, negative impact on their lives. Our team is here to help recover your lost money if you have suffered as a result of a fraud or scam.

How do I know if I am a victim of a scam?

It can be difficult to know if you have been a victim of a fraud or scam as they can seem very genuine. However, it might be a scam if:

  • It seems far too good to be true – For example something is much cheaper than you would expect
  • Someone you do not know contacts you unexpectedly
  • You are pressured into making a decision
  • You have a suspicion that the company you are dealing with is not real – for example they do not have clear or available contact details
  • You are asked to provide private personal information
