Pension scam victims 'lost £91,000 each'



Pension scam victims lose an average of £91,000 each as fraudsters see the potential for looting savings pots.

 
One victim, Jennifer Ringstead, who lost over £50,000, said she was "angry" she had not been compensated and would have to start saving from scratch.


City regulators are now launching a new campaign aimed at alerting people - especially those in their 40s, 50s, and 60s - to the risk of pension fraud.


They want people to check any pensions firm they deal with is authorised.
