Scam letters to SVS clients from clone firm
Please note this as an urgent notification about a fraudulent letter you may have received/may receive.
It came to our attention that a clone firm has been sending letters to our clients (ex-SVS clients) using ITI Capital Ltd name and branding.
The letter lists a telephone number that is unrelated to ITI Capital and asks the client to provide an issued TRLAN (Trade Reference License Agreement) number and Case Reference Number. Upon contacting the number, the individual on the other end of the phone demands £2,000 be sent to them.
If you received any such letters, please ignore it and do not contact the number provided in the letter or disclose any information.

ITI Capital is fully aware of its responsibilities in safeguarding client assets and the importance of onboarding new clients efficiently. Unfortunately, ITI has suffered certain technical problems during this on boarding process which has caused delays and regrets the anxiety and inconvenience this may have caused to those clients who tried to access their accounts. ITI is working hard to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and to increase staffing levels to support the higher call volumes from affected clients caused by the initial technical challenges.
We would like to make it clear that all assets, cash and investments are completely safe. The issue is one of data reconciliation not one concerning location of the assets, cash and investments. We are seeking to ensure all new accounts are reconciled as soon as possible. We are providing the FCA with regular updates and such information as they may require and are working round the clock with, our service providers to ensure that the problems with onboarding and reconciliation are quickly addressed.
We would also like to thank clients for patience whilst we complete the migration process and will keep providing regular updates to all our customers. As previously communicated to SVS customers, they have the ability to call in and place orders over the phone with Dealers and ITI will honour the online rate. ITI will now place trades for all customers over the phone, subject to call-handling times during volatile markets, regardless of the status of the client’s registration. The client will be required to validate their personal information before the trade instruction is accepted.
Fraud Alert: Protect yourself
Fraudsters claim to be from a legitimate firm authorised by FCA. Fraudsters look for new ways to scam consumers, but one scam increasingly reported to us and to the FCA involves share scammers pretending to be from a regulated firm, who are authorised by FCA.
These scammers typically cold-call investors to promote shares, property or other investment opportunities that are non-tradable, worthless, overpriced or even non-existent.
A new tactic has seen fraudsters using the name, ‘firm registration number’ (FRN) and address of firms and individuals authorised by us to suggest they are genuine
This is what we call a ‘clone firm’.
ITI Capital Limited does NOT make unsolicited cold calls!
If you are offered unsolicited investment advice, discounted shares, a premium price for shares you own, or free company or research reports, you should take these steps before handing over any money:
To reduce the chance of falling victim to investment fraud, the FCA advises consumers to, at the very least:
1.Reject unsolicited investment offers whether made online, on social media or over the phone.
2.Before investing, check the FCA Register to see if the firm or individual you are dealing with is authorised and check the FCA Warning List of firms to avoid.
REPORT A SCAM
If you are approached about a share scam you should tell the FCA using the Share Fraud Reporting Form, where you can find out about the latest 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 ActionFraud on 0300 123 2040 or use the ActionFraud Online Reporting Tool. For the latest information on coronavirus-related fraud you can follow Action Fraud on Twitter.
