Pensions Cold Calling Ban

Following on from my Scam Smart event last month, I'm delighted to announce the pensions cold calling ban comes into effect today. The ban will help people stay protected and ensure pensioners have dignity and security in retirement, with fines of £500,000 fines for scammers.

Pensions Minister Guy Opperman MP: "Pension scams are despicable crimes, fleecing people of the retirement they've earned by doing the right thing, working hard and saving for the future.  Banning pensions cold calling will protect people from these callous crooks and ensure fraudsters feel the full force of the law."
