Scammers continue to contact Northern Rock shareholders

Beware of an increasing number of scammers contacting Northern Rock shareholders.

The firms state they are financial services, consultancy services and legal organisations. They require their targets to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Some are saying that they are doing this on behalf of Virgin Money UK. 

Sue Milton, External Relations Director, has contacted Virgin Money, the bank that bought Northern Rock in January 2012.  Virgin Money has confirmed they are not doing anything with Northern Rock and these firms are not acting on behalf of Virgin Money.

Virgin Money also recommends all those contacted to report it to Action Fraud (except Scotland) or to the police on 101 (Scotland only), and to write to Virgin Money at
