The City of London police have revealed the result to their research into investment scams and the most likely targets which sees a new joint initiative launched with Trading Standards.

From my own experience in dealing with creditors involved in these scam companies that have been forced into liquidation I am not surprised by the findings.  I have also found that many are married men whose partners do not have any involvement in the family's savings. If a couple/or family members shared the 'nest egg' responsibility then perhaps a red flag would fly as the more these types of investments are discussed the less secretive and successful these scammers will be.
