What is Boiler Room Fraud?
Boiler room fraud is a particularly serious, involving unlicensed share dealing. This offence has been increasingly on the radar of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)and other agencies and has led to numerous prosecutions of stockbrokers, bankers and other professionals.
Share dealing is a regulated activity, and boiler room fraud refers to fraud where there is a busy hub of activity where fraud is being carried out. A good example of this is where a number of salesmen cold call investors to sell the worthless of non-existent stocks. This is a particularly serious offence as convincing investors or the general public to invest in this way can have serious consequences for those who are victims of the fraud. However, many of those who become involved in boiler room fraud have been recruited to take part, without full knowledge of the fraud they are becoming involved in. Those recruited by boiler room fraudsters may be encouraged to use tactics such as intimidation, and threatening legal action against victims.
