Scam Warning - Impersonation scams

Cold calling

We’re aware of attempts by fraudsters to contact customer via text or pre-recorded message claiming their personal data has been changed or compromised.  

These calls aren’t connected to Royal London and we advise no further contact is made with the sender.   

Savings accounts

In some cases, people are asked to transfer money through offers for products with high rates of return on savings accounts or discuss deceased relatives’ unclaimed estates or money.

These aren’t connected to Royal London and aren’t legitimate.

What to look out for
