coronavirus - financial crime and scams

Protect yourself and your money

Criminals never sleep. Sadly they are taking advantage of the Covid-19 situation. This is the time to be even more vigilant around possible scams. 

As shocking and disturbing as fraud is, especially right now, we urge you to be especially cautious. 
 
Scams come in many shapes, forms and disguises, whether they are about insurance policies, pension transfers or high-return investments. Make sure you do everything possible to safeguard your money. Here at LV= we still have a team that fights financial crime. Here’s our information and other useful links about what to watch out for.
