A useful tool to navigate. The campaign launched yesterday will include links to the tool, key messages and top tips over the 3rd - 7th January 2017.
I will be following the campaign @TPASnews
With pension scams hitting the headlines, we’ve seen a promising increase in consumer awareness, with more of our customers calling our service to ‘check’ before proceeding. We are continuously looking to see how we can improve scam identification and provide support to potential victims. We record what our customers are telling us to identify any changes to scams. We are finding that some consumers are being approached with clear examples of scams but other “offers” are more complex and harder for customers to identify it as a scam. For consumers who transfer their pension money into a scam vehicle, it is very clear that the likelihood of them recovering their funds will be incredibly unlikely.
