Unsolicited Telephone Calls
It has been brought to our attention that some of our shareholders are receiving telephone calls from an organisation purporting to wish to buy their shares in the Scottish.
We would urge all investors to exercise caution when dealing with any unsolicited telephone call. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
We would like to advise you that we have no connection whatsoever with this and have not sanctioned these calls. We do not undertake cold calling, nor would we allow other organisations to use our name in their promotional activities.
As a UK listed company, SIT’s share register is publicly available and we assume that this organisation has obtained a copy by legitimate means. However, any reference made to The Scottish Investment Trust, or any suggestion that we have arranged these calls or are recommending any service or product, is incorrect.
Unfortunately, these types of scams are not uncommon and the FCA website has a page outlining this.
The FCA page also outlines ways of reporting the attempted scam to them, if you wish to do so.
If you have any concerns regarding this matter please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We remind you to treat any such calls with caution.
