SHAREHOLDER WARNING: SHARE FRAUD


We have recently become aware that some shareholders in Camellia have received unsolicited phone calls concerning their shareholding in Camellia.  These are from organisations that do not represent Camellia and are attempting to persuade them to enter into transactions regarding their Camellia shares. 

Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy or sell shares or offers of free company reports.

If you receive any unsolicited approach (whether by telephone, mail, email or in person), we recommend that you:

  • Make sure you get the name of the person and organisation.
  • Before engaging with any approach, check the FCA Register to see if the firm or individual you are dealing with is authorised, check the FCA Warning List of unauthorised firms to avoid and only use the contact details for authorised firms that are published on the FCA website.
  • Get independent advice before entering into any transaction.

The FCA’s ScamSmart campaign encourages investors to check its dedicated website www.fca.org.uk/scamsmart for tips on how to avoid investment fraud.  If you have any doubts or suspicions in relation to any approach or your dealings with any individual or firm, you can report the matter through that website, or by calling the FCA helpline on 0800 111 6768

We strongly advise shareholders to only deal with financial services firms that are authorised by the FCA.  If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you will not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, or have access to the Financial Ombudsman Service. If an unauthorised firm contacts you by phone, the best course of action is to hang up. If you have already paid money to share fraudsters you should contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
