We have been made aware that a number of existing Shareholders and those of other VCTs have been contacted in connection with fraudulent financial scams. In these instances, Shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls from persons claiming to work for a corporate finance firm, offering to buy Shareholder’s VCT shares at an inflated price in connection with a possible take-over of the VCT and asking Shareholders to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
The claims made are false and are invariably an attempt to obtain confidential personal information from Shareholders with a view to fraudulently extracting money from them.
Shareholders are warned to be very suspicious if they receive any similar type of communication and we would recommend that you do not respond with any personal information.
If you are in any doubt, we recommend that you seek professional financial advice before taking any action. You can also call Seneca Partners Limited on 01942 295 981 if you wish to check that any correspondence or communication you receive from the Company is genuine.
