Frauds relating to goods sold as investment involve investments that seem to offer a return that is more attractive than a conventional investment.
The promised return may be in the form of income, interest or profit.
Goods offered may be shares, fine wine, gemstones, art, antiques and other ‘rare’ high value items.
In reality, the investment opportunity is too good to be true and what is offered is often over-priced, very high risk and difficult to sell on.
If fraud has been committed, report it to Action Fraud.
