Aviva Investors Pacific Pty Ltd (“Aviva Investors”) has been made aware of a financial scam currently underway where members of the public and financial advice firms are being approached by individuals fraudulently representing themselves as our employees to pitch fake investment schemes.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind investors to be vigilant when contacted by an unknown party offering investment opportunities.
