Bogus States of Alderney and Guernsey Financial Services Commission document

8th October 2009

​The Guernsey Financial Services Commission has recently had a copy of a letter brought to its attention which contains details of both the States of Alderney and the Commission on the same headed paper. The letter, which is titled "Urgent Notice", refers to a large sum of money for a named individual and that a security deposit should be paid to a certain bank account.

This is to warn anyone who comes into possession of such a letter that it is completely false and is clearly being used in support of an attempt to commit a fraud. If you receive a document of this description, or if you are unsure about the genuineness of any similar document, please contact the Commission's Intelligence Team for further guidance on telephone 712706.
