How To Protect Yourself?

Listed below is some tips on how you can protect yourself from being duped into a financial fraud or scam:.

  • Remember the golden rule - if it sounds too good to be true, it's probably a lie;
  • Deal only with licensed financial institutions and authorised dealers;
  • Check with the relevant authorities before investing/ depositing;
  • Don't be pressured or rushed to invest;
  • Be extra careful with investments over the internet;
  • Be sceptical of any investment opportunity that is not in writing; and
  • In case an investment has been made, keep copies of all the investment and communications.
