Pensions Cold Calling

Companies that make unwanted, unsolicited phone calls to people about their pensions may now face enforcement action, including fines of up to half a million pounds. The pensions cold calling ban has come into effect from yesterday, helping to keep people protected and ensure pensioners have dignity and security in retirement. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/pensions-cold-calling-banned. One of the most common methods used by scammers to commit pensions fraud is through cold calls, which is why the government has taken action.

I was glad to have been able to contribute to and speak in the debate for the Financial Guidance and Claims bill last year, these measures which have now been brought in, will help people in Wiltshire.
