Can shareholders protect themselves from the risk of fraud?

Many companies have become aware that their shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. These are typically from overseas based ‘brokers’, who target UK shareholders, offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high risk shares in US or UK investments.
