Protect your workforce against pension scams

Pension scams are on the rise

No-one is immune from pension scams. The next victim could be any one of your colleagues.

Pension scammers can be highly persuasive, using sophisticated methods to strip honest workers of their pension savings and retirement plans. And once that money is gone, it’s almost impossible to get back, even if the scammer is caught and prosecuted.

These fraudsters leave a trail of devastation behind them as they move on to their next victim.
