Clone firm investment scams are on the rise

Knowledge is your best defence when tackling fraud - which is why, back in October 2020, we let you know that fraudsters were using the Fidelity name to promote a fake ‘Fixed Interest Investment ISA Bond’. This type of investment scam (as recently reported by the FCA) is still increasing, with firms across the financial services industry continuing to be 'cloned'.
