Fraudulent activity

Established organisations like Baillie Gifford are often targeted by fraudsters to add the appearance of legitimacy to their crimes. This can take many forms but often fraudsters will impersonate representatives of the company. They will frequently use falsified or copied material (documents, email addresses, websites etc), that uses the branding and intellectual property of the company, as a tool for impersonation.
