Be aware of life insurance scams

Life insurance scams are a common kind of fraud. With 40 million UK adults targeted by scammers in Q1 of last year1, it is important to be prepared.

Scams can take place in a variety of ways and are becoming increasingly sophisticated due to technological advancements. Fraudsters sometimes claim to be an insurer contacting you about your life insurance policy. If you receive an unsolicited call, text, or email along these lines, you should always ask for proof of their identity. Alarm bells should start ringing if you are asked for personal information. Often, fraudsters are trying to gain information for identity fraud, so never click on a link that seems suspicious and do not enter any bank details.

As with all insurance policies, conditions and exclusions will apply.
