Article in today's Telegraph newspaper. 38,000 Britons on a target list for scammers are getting a warning letter.

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) is contacting more than 38,000 people in the UK being targeted by fraudsters intent on conning them out of thousands of pounds.

The campaign comes after the discovery earlier this month of the largest-ever so-called suckers list with the names and details of 38,242 Britons who could be at risk from share-trading scams.

The list was discovered by the US authorities before being handed to the FSA and mainly contains the details of people living in and around London and the South East of England, though a significant number live in Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Letters are now being sent out by the FSAs Unauthorised Business division, which is in charge of investigating and prosecuting so-called boiler room unauthorised share-trading firms and other illegal financial operators.

Different boiler rooms are known to trade lists such as the one found last month for thousands of pounds. In previous cases, as many as 150 boiler rooms have been discovered to be actively using a single list, which are compiled from open shareholder registers.

On average, victims of this type of fraud lose about £20,000, though in some cases individuals have lost hundreds, or even millions, of pounds.

Jonathan Phelan, head of unauthorised business at the FSA, said he thought the list was still being actively used by several boiler rooms and that contacting those named on it would prevent people falling victim to criminals.

We are hoping that weve caught this list in its early stages of usage and that few of the people on it will have been contacted, said Mr Phelan.

What I am hoping is that anyone who has been scammed by one of these operators could give us the bank account details of where their money was transferred to so we might be able to freeze the cash, giving us a good chance of catching some of those involved.


I wonder how many baiter's are on the list?
