Report a scam or unauthorised firm

If you suspect you have been contacted by an unauthorised firm or individual carrying out an FCA regulated activity – who often cold call people – report it to us using the form below. 

Almost all firms and individuals offering financial services in the UK must be authorised or registered by us. You should only deal with authorised or registered firms. Always check the Financial Services Register to ensure firms are authorised or registered.

Please tell us as much as you can about the unauthorised firm or individual who contacted you. If you have been contacted by several firms or individuals then please complete a separate form for each of them.

If you think you have lost money to fraud, you should report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online via their website.

On the form below, tell us about the unauthorised firm or individual you are reporting to us and why you are reporting them. On the next page you will be asked to provide details about yourself.

This form is only for reporting unauthorised firms or individuals. If the firm or person you want to report is authorised or registered with the FCA, then please contact us using our regular contact details.

We do not currently regulate binary options trading and will not be able to assist with reports in this area. If you want to report a binary options trading fraud, please notify Action Fraud.
