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.
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.
If you have lost money to an investment fraud, you should report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at www.actionfraud.police.uk.
