Pensions Regulator warns of fraudsters cold-calling

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has warned of fraudsters who may be trying to steal the savings of workers by falsely claiming to be calling from The Pensions Regulator.

The TPR has received reports of pension holders being cold-called by individuals who have posed as TPR staff offering the workers a 'free pension review'. TPR have confirmed that this is a common warning sign of a scam as TPR never cold-calls individuals about their pensions. TPR has reported the cases to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) for investigation and will also report any future cases.

TPR has advised pension holders that if they are cold-called about their pension, or believe they could be the victim of pension fraud, to contact Action Fraud on 0300 1232040.
