I recently received an email out of the blue from deVere Germany talking about my UK pension and Brexit. I've never had contact with the company before and never gave out my email to them. Apparently they seemed to have gleaned my info from LinkedIn (Which is funny, because the email they contacted isn't even available on LinkedIn). The email is as follows:
Good afternoon Draken,
My name is ***** and I work for DeVere Germany. We have recently expanded our presence here in Europe so we can give the proper advice to anyone who has worked in the UK and may have contributed to a private pension.
During my research on LinkedIn your profile grabbed my attention. I can see that you spent some time in the UK and so I wanted to reach out.
With Brexit looming we recommend anyone who has such assets discusses their options. Is this something that would be of interest?
I'm not interested in discussing anything with them, after all they contacted me and that's often a bad sign, plus my UK private pension doesn't even break 100GBP. However I found this odd post which points to them not doing everything correctly. Is that correct? Are they a scrupulous company? Should other people be wary if they get contacted?
