Aegon says 60 savers a month are being targeted by crooks in 2016. With the volume of cold calls and these types of scams on the increase I have little doubt this is a conservative figure. It is not just victims of pension liberation scams who take out their lump sums early who are at risk but anyone of pensionable age with savings.
Aegon says 60 savers a month are being targeted by crooks in 2016, up from 20 last year. The fraudsters typically cold-call victims and offer free pension reviews.
