Protect your Loved ones & your clients from Scams – Financial Scam Smart Day 2018

Paul Murray Investments is hosting Financial Scam Smart Day on 30th November 2018 from 11am to 4pm. We want this day to be a platform for local businesses to exhibit, create new relationships and take on advice on financial scamming to bring back to the office and to your clients. This event aims to unite, educate and inspire businesses on how we can help our clients (especially vulnerable clients) and to strengthen our community to support this cause.

Scam Smart day, Scam Aware


Lindsay Taylor and Liam Colville, both solicitors at Coffin Mew are championing scam awareness. Lindsay comments “We have many clients who have either picked up the pieces after family members have been scammed or been the subject of scams themselves. It is very easy to fall victim to a crime when the perpetrator is a charming unassuming individual, trusted by the victim or a seasoned person using bullying tactics.”

Liam adds “By spreading the word and highlighting the tricks used we hope more people will be able to spot the signs of a scam in the making.”

The event has a great speaker line up including Professor Keith Brown from NCPQSW, Marilyn Baldwin OBE from Think Jessica and Stephen Morgan MP from the Labour Party. Please join us to learn about being scam smart and network with the Portsmouth community.
