Persons providing false FMA documentation in suspected scam

Page last updated: 1 Oct 2019

The FMA is aware that false letters and receipts featuring the FMA logo and staff names have been used overseas to solicit money. The false letters claim that a mandatory fee is payable to enable the FMA to obtain official documents and facilitate the approval of loan funds. The correspondence is fictitious and characteristic of advance fee fraud. The FMA does not undertake activities of the type described in the letter and would never ask individuals or entities for money for activities or transactions of this type.
