Is a land bank investment a fraud?

Commonly a company has ownership of the large piece of land, then it is divided into smaller individual plots for sale to investors. Because the land is undeveloped and may not have planning permission, the returns could be huge.

The land bank investment fraud starts when the scammers are purchasing really cheap land with no value. They then get investors to invest in the land at normal investment fees. But the land doesn’t get developed, and you will not get any profit back. In fact, you might not even purchase real land.

Often, first contact from a land banking company comes via a cold call, but it could also be via an email or letter. The lure of the lucrative promised returns can sound too good to be true. These land bank scams are going way back. So there are thousands of people still struggling to land bank investment.
