It has come to our attention that our name is being used illegally to fraudulently solicit business with the promise of unrealistic quick returns, using the names of legitimate Ashburton Investments employees and products in order to lend credibility to the scam.
Please be advised that Ashburton Investments is a long term investment manager and we will never:
1) Interact with prospective clients via whatsapp - only via our official company channels (telephonically or email via our client contact centre).
2) Make a promise of quick returns or put a number to expected returns.
3) Ask you to pay money into a bank account of an individual. We only accept payment into our bank account.
4) If in any doubt, please contact us immediately before you take any action at email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0860 000 339. We will be glad to assist.
In difficult economic times incidences of fraud are unfortunately on the rise. We urge people to be extra cautious before parting with hard earned money for investment promises that are too good to be true.
If you receive a whatsapp message, a direct social media message, a call or an email that you are concerned about, don't respond but rather get in touch with us straight away.
Please take a moment to think before you act.
