    Warwickshire Trading Standards – Investment Scam Warning
    Posted on May 9, 2018 by admin
    A Warwickshire resident lost thousands of pounds following an investment on a bogus share website.

    The resident received a cold call from a ‘financial expert’ who convinced him to invest £1000 via a investor website. The resident’s investment appeared to be doing well and the ‘adviser’ then called again and convinced him to invest a much larger sum. The ‘adviser’ appeared to be carrying out trades on behalf of the investor on the website, but the money soon disappeared. The ‘adviser’ could not be contacted and the website was closed down.

    Fraudsters use bogus websites to give the illusion that successful share dealing is taking place in order to convince investors to invest more money. They then take steal the money, disappear and the website is closed.

    How do people keep falling for that kind of crap?
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    It's a bit like the old adage that you can't con an honest man.
