Providers should take a stand against pension liberation schemes by refusing to comply with transfer requests, advisers say.
Of 107 advisers polled, 86 said pension or self-invested personal pension (SIPP) providers should decline to transfer out a client's funds where liberation is suspected.
The survey by Liberty SIPP also found that 68 advisers had noticed an increased incidence of clients being approached by the schemes.
Managing director at the group John Fox said: "It's hugely encouraging to see that the vast majority of IFAs are keen to take a stand against pension liberation schemes. This is a shot across the bows of would-be pension liberators and sends out a clear message: stay away.
"Make no mistake, pension liberation firms are a menace. They prey on savers who have worked hard to put money aside for later in life, often buying up marketing lists and financial data in order to target vulnerable people with financial problems.
"They're unscrupulous rip-off merchants who operate at the margins of the law."
