Urban Fraud Myth 11 – Legitimate website?

Message sent by Samantha Hancock (Police, Crime Prevention Unit Manager, Nottinghamshire)

Myth – If a company has a registered website then it must be legitimate.

Truth – It takes just minutes to set up a website in any name you want and at minimal cost which means fraudsters can set-up as website just as easily as anyone else.

Links FCA have requested a link here to their warning list, where you can check companies against their ‘unauthorised business list’ http://scamsmart.fca.org.uk/warninglist/
