Beaufort clients warned of potential scam
Beaufort administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) have made FSCS aware that Beaufort clients are being approached by individuals claiming to be representatives of PwC or The Share Centre Limited (TSC).
These individuals are asking clients to transfer money to them so they can move their holdings to the nominated broker. We’re also aware of individuals claiming to be representatives of PwC and TSC and offering to help with the return of clients’ accounts.
These individuals are not acting on behalf of PwC or any nominated brokers and Beaufort clients should ignore any requests of this nature. We encourage clients to stay vigilant and act cautiously when receiving communications about the administration.
If in doubt, Beaufort clients should contact PwC:
Phone: 0800 063 9283 (UK) or +44 (0)20 7293 0227
