FCA Warns Clients of Cloning Scam

The Financial Conduct Authority provides weekly updates to traders and investors in the United Kingdom, informing them of any updated or new scams surrounding their respective market. Following February 10th, another confirmation was provided relating to a cloned firm. This illegal establishment cloned Goldman’s Banc Firm, which is registered and legalized through the FCA. Those trying to decipher between the two should inquire with the website owned by GMB Portfolio Services Limited, who provides clients with financial advisement services.

The FCA’s official statement reads: “Almost all firms and individuals carrying out financial services activities in the UK have to be authorized or registered by us. This firm is not authorized or registered by us but has been targeting people in the UK, claiming to be an authorized firm. This is what we call a clone firm, and fraudsters usually use this tactic when contacting people out of the blue, so you should be especially wary if you have been cold called.”

Statements continued with: “They may use the name of the genuine firm, the firm reference number, we have given the authorized firm or other details. Be aware that scammers may give out other false details or change their contact details over time to new email addresses, telephone numbers or physical addresses.”

Identifiable Details

Goldman’s Banc is identical to the legalized version of this digital currency service. This online trading provider is operating under the “IO.” Website URL. Individuals should inquire with the .Com or .Ca variation of Goldman’s Banc. Additional details were provided regarding the illegal entity, with clients being informed that their illicit number reference is “738159” and that their wrong address is located at Grampian Court, Unit Fourteen in Livingston. Criminal emails, telephone numbers and support services are maintained with the illicit version of Goldman’s Banc as well.

Another clear way to locate this illegal website is directly on their homepage. This homepage reads: “Swiss financial experts founded Goldman’s Banc. Our financial company is a leading global brand that provides services for working in the financial market. The constant growth and development of products entitle Goldmans Banc to be considered the leading global forex broker. A demo account is available to the company’s customers so that they can evaluate the services provided.”
