How to protect your investment against fraud

To reduce the risk of becoming a victim of fraud:

  • Ensure that share certificates are stored in a safe place, or hold your shares electronically in CREST via a nominee account;
  • Keep correspondence from the Registrars, which shows a shareholder investor code in a safe place, or destroy correspondence by shredding;
  • When changing address, inform the Registrars;
  • If a letter from the Registrars is received regarding a change of address and there has been no recent move, contact the Registrars immediately. The shareholder concerned may be a victim of identity theft; and
  • When buying or selling shares, shareholders should deal only with brokers registered in their own country of residence or the UK.
