Investment scams claim to offer high returns for very little risk. Fraudsters often use false testimonials, fake celebrity endorsements, spoof websites and other marketing materials to make the scams appear genuine. If it seems too good to be true, it generally is.
Ways to spot an investment scam
You’re approached by phone, email, text message or by someone calling at your
house with an investment opportunity The ‘company’ contacting you won’t allow you to call back.
You feel pressured into making a quick decision, for example if the caller states the offer is “only available right now” or “don’t miss out”.
The only contact you’re given is a mobile phone number or a PO box address.
