PUBLIC WARNING - F.S.C Public Warnings
This notice is issued by the Financial Supervision Commission (“the Commission”) in accordance with the powers conferred upon it under Section 30 of the Financial Services Act 2008.
Guaranteed Stone Banking Services
The Commission has recently become aware of a website which purports to represent an entity calling itself Guaranteed Stone Banking Services, falsely claiming to be based at the address, 15 Bucks Road, Douglas, Isle of Man IM1 3PZ.
The purported entity Guaranteed Stone Banking Services claims to offer a full range of online banking services.
The website seen by the Commission gives the contact telephone numbers; +44-702-401-3364, +44-703-189-7763, +1-888-721-4522, +44-702-189-7763 and +1-855-206-6805. These numbers do not relate to lines in the Isle of Man.
The Commission wishes to draw attention to the following observations:
The address situated at the post code IM1 3PZ on Bucks Road, Douglas, Isle of Man is a genuine Isle of Man address. The genuine entity operating from that address has no connection whatsoever with the purported entity Guaranteed Stone Banking Services.
The Commission has established no association between the above entity and any genuine Isle of Man companies.
The Commission has established no genuine links between the above entity and the Isle of Man.
