The Pensions Advisory Service has launched an online campaign which provides information about the things pension savers should look out for and the safeguards they can make to protect themselves from spammers. This comes after research from Portus found that 14% of employed people over the age of 55 believe they have been targeted by a pension scam by phone, email or post since the pension reforms in April 2015.
Michelle Cracknel, TPAS Chief Executive, commented, "we are seeing positive signs that consumers are more aware of pension scams, which is great news, but one scam is a scam too many, so we want to continue to help consumers spot the tricks that are tricking people out of their hard earned money and leaving many with little or nothing for retirement. The online campaign launched today echoes the key messages on spotting a scam and we hope that it will reach even more people".
