We are aware that a small number of our shareholders in Fidelity Special Values PLC have received phone calls about their shares in the Company.
The majority appear to be from overseas brokers. We must stress that these brokers DO NOT represent the Company or Fidelity International in any way.
The process of such calls have been an offer to buy your shares in Fidelity Special Values PLC at an inflated price or the broker offer shares that turn out to be worthless or non-existent.
These calls come from fraudsters operating in ‘boiler rooms’ that are generally based abroad. A `boiler room’ scam involves high pressure sales techniques to force you into investing into stock, without any research of the benefits or risks. Boiler room tactics are sometimes used to persuade you to overspend on an investment due to promised high returns for your investments.
Please be aware that whilst these callers may promise high profits, most people who do get involved usually lose their money. Please act with extreme caution. For further information, please visit the Financial Conduct Authority’s website.
