Pension scams and
online security

It’s hard to spot a scam. Fraudsters target your money, data and identity in sophisticated ways. It’s become so common that you’re more likely to be a victim of fraud or a cyber scam than any other offense.

Pension scams cost savers up to £4 billion a year and The Pensions Regulator (TPR) estimates five million people are currently at risk.

We work hard to keep your online data secure so your personal information doesn’t fall into the hands of scammers. You can protect yourself too, and we’re here to explain how.

How do I report fraud?

Think you’ve been a victim? If your Nest account has been subject to fraud or you’ve accidentally given away your details, tell us straight away and then report it to Action Fraud.

If you receive suspicious emails, please forward them to and then delete them. Run your anti-virus software if you’ve clicked on any links or opened attachments.
