The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) has issued a warning about a fraudulent website.

The fraudulent website which misuses the logo of the DIFC and falsely claims that a company called “FFA (UK) Limited” is based in the DIFC and that it and another company, “Mercury Assets Limited”, are regulated by the DFSA.

The website inaccurately and unlawfully replicates information that can be found on the DIFC Public Register, including the registered number of a DFSA regulated firm with a similar name that has no connection to the scam. It also makes numerous false claims that the companies “FFA (UK) Limited” and “Mercury Assets Limited” are licensed and regulated to provide financial services by the DFSA. It also falsely describes the DFSA as “the UK Financial Services Authority”.

A print out of two pages from the website can be found at http://www.dfsa.ae/getattachme...

The DFSA confirms that the information on the website is false. The DFSA informs you that: there are no companies registered in the DIFC or regulated by the DFSA with the names “FFA (UK) Limited” or “Mercury Assets Limited”; the DIFC registered number quoted on the fraudulent website is registered to an unconnected DFSA regulated firm; and the DFSA has no remit or connection to an entity described as “the UK Financial Services Authority”.

The DFSA strongly advises that you do not respond to any communication regarding the scam, and under no circumstances should you send or give any money to any party in connection with the scam.
