Be careful if you’re offered early access to your pension pot as these offers are generally scams designed to fool you into transferring your pot into bogus schemes. You could lose a lifetime’s worth of savings. So, stop and ask yourself – ‘could this be too good to be true?’ If you’ve already been approached and signed a contract, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
