A short introduction to the UK investment fraud epidemic.
Investment Fraud is rife on a global scale. It costs the UK economy £193 billion annually – an average of more than £3,900 per adult in the UK with losses taking place at a rate of £6,000 per second.
Unless you are investing in a well established framework that can demonstrate a sound and well documented track-record it of course makes logical sense to clarify your options before you invest – but that’s easier said than done.
Criminals use highly sophisticated methods in order to present a reputable opportunity, sometimes even conducting fake meetings in official and distinguished bank offices. To disguise matters further, some high-yielding investment platforms are state funded (here I am not referring to the UK government) and excessive measures are put in place to cloud your judgement.
In such cases why would you not think that the opportunity is safe. Sentry Intelligence partner with government intelligence agencies globally and have the resources to dig deeper than any commercial organisation in the UK. Our in depth investigations can determine whether an investment opportunity is real or fake and go as far as putting ‘boots on the ground’ to recover assets.
If you are considering an investment or have lost assets due to fraud, we can help.
