Share Fraud Warning
It has come to our attention that a number of smaller shareholders have received unsolicited telephone calls concerning their investments in United Carpets Group plc. These calls come from fraudsters operating in ‘boiler rooms’. These callers can be very persistent and extremely persuasive, using high-pressure tactics to lure investors into scams. They may even claim to be calling on behalf of the Company.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has found most share fraud victims are experienced investors who lose an average of £20,000, with around £200m lost in the UK each year.
Shareholders should be wary of any unsolicited investment advice.
Please note the following recommendations in particular if you receive any unsolicited investment advice:
• Keep in mind that firms authorised by the FCA are unlikely to contact you out of the blue with an offer to buy or sell shares
If you use an unauthorised firm to buy or sell shares or other investments, you will not have access to the Financial Ombudsman Service or Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) if things go wrong.
Report a scam
If you are approached about a share scam you should tell the FCA using the share fraud reporting form at www.fca.org.uk/consumers/report-scam-unauthorised-firm, where you can find out about the latest investment scams. You can also call the Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768.
If you have already paid money to share fraudsters you should contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
If you have any further queries, please contact Mr Ian Bowness, Company Secretary on 01709 732666 ext 301.
