Police: there’s no such thing as easy money
Police have warned the public to be wary of online scams which pose as legitimate investment opportunities.
A police spokesman said officers recently received reports of a scam that involved digital currency in which the website used to trade the electronic cash was fraudulent.
He said: “The website address, www.iforexlive.co.uk, has since been suspended.
“It is strongly recommended that such transactions are only conducted through well-known and reputable financial institutions.
“Any incidents of suspected internet fraud should be reported to the Financial Crime Unit at 247-1757 or through the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.”
