William Hill PLC shareholders are advised to be cautious about any unsolicited financial advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports.
It has been brought to our attention that our shareholders are being contacted by someone purporting to be from a US investment firm offering to buy William Hill shares. We do not consider this to be a legitimate approach and would advise shareholders to remain vigilant at all times. Please see the warning below for further information on what should do if you receive any unsolicited investment advice.
If you have any queries, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has recently reported a dramatic rise in the number of enquiries they have received relating to share scams. The "boiler room" scam has developed over recent years and there has been an increase in reports of overseas fraudsters contacting shareholders to sell and buy shares using the names, registration numbers and addresses of authorised firms and individuals in an attempt to convince consumers of their legitimacy.
If you are approached by fraudsters please tell the FCA using the share fraud reporting form at www.fca.org.uk/scams, where you can find out more about investment scams. You can also call the FCA Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768. If you have already paid money to share fraudsters you should contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
