Kingsway Financial Services Group Limited (“KFS”) warns against fraudsters pretending to be staff of KFS in order to defraud investors of money.
KFS would like to alert the public of fraudsters pretending to be staff of KFS or its holding company, Sunwah Kingsway Capital Holdings Limited (“Sunwah Kingsway”) in order to defraud investors of money. These fraudsters will contact the public online or through social media and impersonate staff of KFS or Sunwah Kingsway. The fraudsters will then pretend to open a securities account with you. The fake account opening process is conducted entirely online. Once the fraudsters trick you into believing an account is opened, they will request that you deposit a sum of money into an individual bank account.
Additionally, from time to time on the Internet or in direct marketing channels, there are non-authorised entities that may claim themselves as partners of SWK or KFS. You should never make deposit into bank accounts in the name of non-authorised entities.
Please note that KFS has no connection with such deceptive practices, does not open accounts solely online and does not, under any circumstances, request clients to transfer funds to bank accounts that are not under KFS’s name.
Please be aware that
(1) KFS does not offer online account opening.
(2) SWK and KFS do not offer clients any service involving cryptocurrency.
