The Insolvency Service reports on a jail sentence for a cold caller who scammed elderly wine investors.

With prevention being the key, a financial planner has successfully launched a parliamentary petition calling for a ban on all cold-calling related to pensions or investments.

Even with a ban cold callers may still reach their victims however such a ban, if recognised publically, may just may set alarm bells ringing for any potential victims who may then receive a call.
