The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) on Wednesday alerted the community to false, misleading and deceptive information made on the following website http://www.dubaific.com/about-dfic.html.
The website states that “Dubai Financial Investment Capital” is located in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), The Gate, East Wing, 13th Floor.
This information is incorrect. Dubai Financial Investment Capital is not located in the DIFC, and is not affiliated with the DIFC, despite the use of the initials “DIFC” on the website.
It is a contravention of DFSA Law and Rules for a person to represent that they are regulated by the DFSA, when they are not. The DFSA strongly advises members of the public not to deal with the firm or persons connected with the website.
The DFSA has recently issued warnings and guidance in regard to the common types of scams perpetrated on consumers.
