Safe Or Scam

Safe Or Scam protects investors from being taken in by scam investments, dishonest sales companies and unscrupulous salespeople. We can undertake a thorough review before you invest.

If the investment has already been made we can work with you to take action to recover your money.

It does not matter if the investment has collapsed and the perpetrators have run off. Action may still be possible to recover funds.

Joining is easy and free. Free membership gives members access to safer investment advice and to our Star Rating pages covering investment projects, sales companies and the sales people we have come across.

If you need specific advice on your proposed or existing investment you can purchase one of our PRE or PRO tariffs.

If consulted BEFORE investing we can save you from financial loss, stress and heartache. If consulted AFTER investing we can identify undisclosed risks, omissions and false statements. We can then work with you on investment recovery actions.

If you have any questions please feel free to email us. We will be happy to help.

For information on some of the investments we are investigating see our ‘Actions’ page. All communications are confidential. We never share members’ details with any outside party.

The Problem

The number of false, misleading and scam investments being promoted to the public is increasing. They often appear highly credible, low risk and are sold by very persuasive sales teams. Often this is just a smokescreen. The projects fail. Websites disappear. Phone calls and emails go unanswered. Investors are left high and dry with no idea of how to recover their investment.

The Solution

SOS can review all elements of the investments and provide investors with personalised guidance on potential recovery options. We  help to form investor action groups to pursue recovery actions. We track down the perpetrators and hold them to account. We can involve solicitor partners when necessary and will do our utmost to recover investor funds.

How We Work

We undertake a full review of your investment from first contact through to the present day. Once the review is complete you are free to take your own action or to instruct SOS to work with you on a recovery action. SOS recovery actions are normally undertaken on a no-win no-fee basis for a percentage of what is recovered. Please contact us for more information.
