What are investment scams?
Investment scams are one of many ways criminals try and steal your money. They try to convince you to invest in a scheme, shares or commodities, which either don’t exist, or aren’t worth the money paid for them.
These scams are becoming increasingly common and can take a variety of forms, so it's important you know how to spot them. Scammers will target anyone who responds to them and may build trusting relationships with their victims over a period of time.
