How To Spot a Fake Investment Opportunity

Money is definitely not easy to come by! Nigerians are having to work full time jobs, take up side hustles in order to maintain their lifestyle, take care of themselves and their families. It is therefore important that we do not lose our hard-earned monies to scams appearing as investment opportunities. In the video below, the Chief Executive Officer of AXA Mansard Investments Limited, Deji Tunde-Anjous shares a few tell tale signs with which we can tell a fake investment from a real one.

Other signs that an investment opportunity may be a scam include:

  1. Unsolicited contact: You may be contacted randomly by a business you’ve never given your contact details with by email, phone or text message through their ‘salesperson’ or ‘investment guide’ you have never met spoken to before. If you’re unable to establish how they got your details, it may be a scam.
  2. Investment schemes that are too complicated to understand. It is probably made that way on purpose to confuse their victim(s)
