Hampshire County Council Trading Standards Service has continued to receive complaints from concerned consumers who have been involved in shareholding scams.
The scammers will access information on shareholders from a public register asking to buy a percentage of the consumer’s share at a good price.
The scammer will not correspond by post, and suggest vulnerable consumers use their local library’s fax machine. They are then asked to return the fax along with a payment which is made by bank transfer.
Once a payment is made the scammer will persist in chasing for more money.
Consumers are urged NOT to respond to any offers of this nature and to report any concerns to the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on
08454 04 05 06
Or online using the
