We would like to warn all of our shareholders to be very wary of any unsolicited telephone calls or letters which offer: -
- Investment advice
- Offers to buy shares at a discounted prices
- Offers to sell your Rolls-Royce shares at an inflated price
- Offers of free company reports.
We’ve been advised that some of our shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or letters from individuals or companies offering to buy or sell shares on very favourable terms. The callers are usually overseas based 'brokers' who are very persuasive and extremely persistent, and often have professional websites and telephone numbers to support their activities. These callers will sometimes imply a connection to Rolls-Royce and provide incorrect or misleading information about Rolls-Royce.
This type of call should be treated as an investment scam – the safest thing to do is hang up.
If you have already been approached you can report this matter to the Financial Conduct Authority by completing their share fraud reporting form or by calling them on 0800 111 6768.
