Pension scamming – in other words fraudulent or dishonest activity intended to con you out of your pension savings – is an area of fraud which has grown substantially in recent years. The true scale of the amount lost to scams, and the number of victims, is likely to be much higher than reports would suggest as victims often do not realise they have been tricked until many years later. You need to be vigilant to ensure you do not get scammed and to protect the pension benefits you have worked for.
