Our Story

My name is Alex Somervell. Four years ago, a member of my family was scammed out of £150,000- most of their life savings. At the time, they were in a vulnerable stage of life and were the victim of 3 scams, spanning 4 months and 9 individual transactions.

This experience inspired me and my long-time business partner and friend, Jonny Pryn, to found Ask Silver. We’re on a mission to stop scams like the one my relative was a victim of.
