Fraud – Misuse of M&G name
It is important to note that you will never receive an email from us asking you to divulge any personal information. From time to time, the M&G name and logo have been misused by organisations and individuals unconnected to M&G for fraudulent purposes. These misuses include unsolicited communications with requests for money and personal details, and claims that M&G is the guarantor of financial transactions. If you receive an email message or any other communication that looks suspicious or you feel that you may have been a victim of a fraudulent scheme involving the M&G name or logo, please do not respond to it and notify us immediately at email@example.com.
