Firms and advisers selling, promoting or advising on shares require our authorisation to do so. But some unauthorised firms – usually based abroad but claiming to be in the UK – target investors with offers of worthless, overpriced or non-existent shares.
If you think you have been contacted by share fraudsters or a boiler room please tell us as much as you can about the company or adviser involved. You should complete separate forms if you were contacted by several firms or advisers.
We will only contact you again if we require further information but may not be able to discuss any investigations further with you.
Note: This form is for share fraud and boiler room scams only. For other concerns or scams please contact our Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768.
The FCA appreciates your assistance in filling in this form and we may pass your details onto law enforcement agencies.
