FSCS consumer alert! Look out for scam emails
The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is warning consumers to be wary of fake emails from fraudsters claiming to represent FSCS.
FSCS is aware that fraudsters have targeted at least one consumer via email asking for a fee for FSCS services.
FSCS is asking consumers to look out for the following:
- Official FSCS emails end with @fscs.org.uk. Emails with a different ending such as @zoho.com are not from FSCS.
- FSCS will never ask customers for money or fees to make a claim for compensation. FSCS’s service is free to customers.
An FSCS spokesperson says: “FSCS takes fraud very seriously. We are trying to identify these people and prevent them from impersonating FSCS and defrauding FSCS’s customers. We’re asking customers to be vigilant and to contact us if they suspect anything suspicious relating to their claim.”
