FCA Warns of Fraudsters Masquerading as Liverpool Victoria Financial Services
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has issued a warning about a fraudulent firm, Liverpool Victoria Financial Services, masquerading as FCA authorised Liverpool Victoria Financial Services Limited.
“This is what we call a ‘clone firm’; and fraudsters usually use this tactic when contacting people out of the blue, so you should be especially wary if you have been cold called. They may use the name of the genuine firm, the ‘firm reference number’ (FRN) we have given the authorised firm or other details.”
