Crime Prevention Advice

Fraudsters have a lot of tricks up their sleeves and in Surrey, 50% of investment fraud takes place over the phone. 

Some signs to look out for:
- Fraudsters will try to sell investments in emerging markets that will lead to quick wins. 
- They will do their homework and make it their business to know as much as possible about you and will call you a few times to build a relationship and get to know you. 

In the last year, there were 112 victims of investment fraud in Surrey alone – with £122,020 on average lost.
