This type of scam is known as a “clone firm,” where scammers use the details of a genuine, authorized firm to convince people that they represent a legitimate company.

The clone firm is not authorized and has been contacting people, misrepresenting them as an FCA-authorised firm, Admiral Insurance Company Limited.
