GUERNSEY INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL SERVICES COMMISSION,
INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL SERVICES CERTIFIED PAYMENT LIABILITY COVERAGE,
IFSP & LC CERTIFICATION DECLARATION FORM
The Commission has become aware of a scam in which victims are asked to pay a fee in order to obtain “Certified Payment Liability Coverage” from the “International Financial Services Commission”, to enable funds to be released.
The address given corresponds with that of the Guernsey Financial Services Commission but there is no such entity as the International Financial Services Commission in Guernsey. The Guernsey Financial Services Commission is not involved in “Certified Payment Liability Coverage” or in the authorisation of the release of funds to individuals by financial institutions.
Extreme caution should be used in dealings with anyone requesting advance payment for the release of funds, or any entity associated with such requests. These scams are often associated with bogus banks and may use websites which mimic those of genuine entities.
