Dixon Collins Financial Trust Solutions Scam.
A group of scammers operating under the name of Dixon Collins Financial Trust Solutions is operating a follow-on-fraud on victims of investment scams.
They have purchased the investment details, phone numbers and email addresses of victims from the founders or master sales agent of the original scam. The victims who are coming forward invested in the original scam six years ago so it goes to show how far back scammers are prepared to go to try their luck. This group is focused on people who invested through their pension funds.
The Dixon Collins Financial Trust Solutions scam follows a fairly common template. In this case it is the “we have found a buyer for your investment” scam.
The victims are contacted out of the blue via telephone and then receive written confirmation of the details of the fake offer. Here is their introductory email below:

Subject: Dixon Collins – Introduction
Following from our telephone conversation, we are writing to introduce our company and the services we provide.
As you may now be aware, due to the misrepresentation of various pension providers in the UK, many clients’ pensions have been unduly invested into XXXXXXXXXXX.
At this stage, we are currently investigating your investment and will get back to you as soon as possible with further updates on your position.
As discussed, the current state of XXXXXXXXXXXX PLC is one that is unfavourable to many clients in the UK, with a BBC Documentary being created in 2016 about the company on the topic of “pension fund rip-offs”. As such, we have sourced some independent articles below for further due diligence on this company.
We will be in touch with you in due course regarding any further developments on the case. If you have any questions or would like any further information, please reply to this email and we will get back to you.
Alternatively, you can find more information on our company by visiting our website at dixoncollins.com.
Here is an example of the letter investors have been receiving. Any details identifying the investor and his/her investment have been redacted:
Dixon Collins claims that the Buying Party has deposited 10% of the purchase price in their account. They now need the victim to deposit the same amount so that the transaction can move to what they refer to as “preparation of the Transfer Of Ownership Contract”. As always there is the standard promise that the victim’s deposit is fully refundable, but we all know that the scammers will run off with the money the moment the victim pays it to them.
The Dixon Collins Financial Trust Solutions domain name was purchased in January 2021 so it is obvious this is a scam. Like many of the follow-on-frauds we come across this one originates in Asia.
Do not be taken in by the Dixon Collins Financial Trust Solutions scam. Anybody who pays them will never see their money again.
