    As someone who regularly received text messages offering me access to my pension funds it isn't before time that they are doing this to crackdown. I can see it is a scam but there are people that may not and are then crippling their retirement as well as lining the pockets of the scammers by going with the "liberation" plans.
    Remember the saying: if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is.

    MSE should certainly have a Forum for scams. Permanent advice pages, sticky threads for ongoing scams.
