People nationwide are receiving cold calls and are being persuaded to invest in 'Fine Art'.
Concerns around this include:
How to protect yourself:
If the investment sounds too good to be true it probably is.
Hang-up on investment cold calls. Legitimate companies will not ring-up and offer you an investment out of the blue.
Do not give out personal financial information to cold callers
Check whether the art dealer is a member of a trade association, such as The Society of London Art Dealers (SLAD), The Association of Art and Antique Dealers (LAPADA), The British Art Dealers Association (BADA) or Confederation of International Dealers in Art Work (CINOA).
Request copies of old receipts, invoices and question the history of the previous owner of the art investment, to check if the product is genuine before investing.
