The ones in Spain and some in the UK were shown to disappropriate upto 50% of the monies claimed from the pension schemes , It was on a BBC progamme not too long ago..

There are legitimate financial advisors, based in Spain, and staffed with english who are qualified to advise those non residents (of the UK) how to take their pensions out of the UK by means of the QROPS facility.

While there are scammers about, sometimes these calls can be genuine, and fruitful, and often get contact nos by referals.

When it comes to pensions etc it's best to be aware of all your options in order to make the right decision.

No sure what the scam is, I shut them down after they mention "pension" but I get these every few months on my mobile from an English woman on a Spainish number.

I've no idea how they got my number either.

All of the above and possibly even your service provider themselves.

I'm interested as to how the UK pension scammers as you call them, know your french mobile number, and also how do they know that you could be in a postion to have a UK pension that they could be interested in scamming?
