Transferwise Email Scam

We received referrals from members of the public querying an investment opportunity with TransferWise (October 2020)

It very quickly became apparent that they had been targeted by a scam. The email had been sent from an address ending @liverpoolvictoria-ltd.com

We would like to make clear:

  • @liverpoolvictoria-ltd.com is not a genuine LV email address
  • We do not have a product called transferwise investment bond
  • We will never ask for payment via a money transfer service
