Sport Investment Fraud

Helpful support & resources for sportspeople and their legitimate advisors.

Sports investment fraud wrecks lives

Fraud in sports is a very real concern. Due to their high-net worth, professional sportsmen and women are all targets for criminals.

Often, unscrupulous advisors groom professional athletes for many years. So sportsmen and women can become victims of the people they trust the most. As a result, when the worst happens, it isn’t just financially devastating, but also emotionally distressing.

We are raising awareness of this issue to help prevent sport scams from happening in the first place. We have also created a range of handy resources to help victims of sport investment fraud recover emotionally and financially.

It’s time to fight back

Many sportsmen and sportswomen in England & Wales have been encouraged to invest in toxic or illegal investment schemes. Those affected could be owed hundreds of thousands of pounds (if not more).
