The following information appears as a scam warning for consumers to avoid.
The following email below is being sent to consumers in an effort to obtain money from them. The email is a fraud.
I contacted the company and Peter Yandle, a spokesperson for Fidelity Worldwide Investments said, “Thank you for forwarding to me the scam email that you received which made out that it was from someone at Fidelity. As you will be aware, there are many people who use the internet in an attempt to carry out fraud. It is clear from the poor standard of English, the email address from which it was sent and the content of the email that it was not a genuine communication from an international investment firm.”
The email in question is this one:
