Warning Concerning Fraudulent Emails 2016-11-18T14:23:32+00:00

It has been drawn to our attention that some members of the public have been contacted by persons who wrongly purport to be associated with Tower Resources and who are offering employment with the company. These persons often make use of an imitation Tower Resources letterhead which bears the company’s logo.

We understand that over the last couple of years many listed companies have become aware that their shareholders and / or members of the public have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning employment / business opportunities, share offers or investment matters.

Tower Resources has a very stringent recruitment process whereby applicants are required to apply for positions through a structured recruitment process. The Company does not seek personal details for any potential employees via unsolicited emails.

If you receive any unsolicited contact from anyone offering you employment with, or shares in, Tower Resources Limited, we recommend that you ignore it and delete the email from your computer.

The Company requests shareholders and members of the public to have regard to this warning regarding fraudulent emails. Whilst the Company is unable to answer individual enquiries regarding unsolicited emails purporting to come from the Company, recipients thereof are welcome to send details of any such fraudulent mails to the company at tower@towerresources.co.uk.

Here are some tips to help spot a fraudulent email:

  • Inspect the email address. At first glance, fraudulent messages can look like they are from Tower Resources but on closer scrutiny have been sent from a hotmail/gmail or other public email account. For example, towerresources@hotmail.com is not a genuine Tower Resources email address.
  • Inspect the URL of websites and links. Companies always use clear URLs like www.towerresources.co.uk/investor. “Scam” sites and links usually have long addresses which use special characters like &^%!*$£”
  • Review wording. If it doesn’t read like a request from a legitimate company, it probably isn’t.
  • Avoid requests that sound vague, improbable or too casual, such as “our database has been corrupted, please resend your details”, or “recent legislation means we require this information”
  • Look for grammar and spelling mistakes. “Scam” emails are often electronically translated from different languages, resulting in obvious spelling / grammatical errors and odd sentence structures

Tower Resources accepts no liability towards any member of the public who is defrauded or suffers loss as a result of fraudulent messages or “scams”.
