Alert on Possible Investment ScamsPress Release 11 Aug 2008 05:50 pm
The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) would like to alert the public of certain e-mails involving investment scams claiming to represent leading decision makers in the business and financial community, inviting individuals to participate as brokers/agents in equity investment portfolio management programmes.
The invitations may suggest that certain leading organisations are privately looking for fiduciary agents and management experts who are willing to act as investment portfolio holders and administrators. The fraudulent schemes claim to offer financial rewards to those who participate. Such e-mails are linked to organised fraud and DIFC strongly advises you not to respond to the invitations.
We request companies and individuals to be wary of any communication that uses the identity of leading organisations or its officials without authorisation to obtain confidential information or induce financial transactions and investments. If you suspect any such communication to be fraudulent, please e-mail [email protected]
