The Financial Services Commission has today issued a warning to the
public regarding "Unique Car Insurance".
The FSC has received information that this entity is operating a website
under the name of "Unique Car Insurance" and offering to provide short-term
motor insurance in the United Kingdom to drivers under the age of 21.
It claims that "Unique Car Insurance 17+ is Limited company who are (sic)
authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Commission in Gibraltar."

mediation or insurance business in or from within Gibraltar.
"Unique Car Insurance" is not a Gibraltar registered company or a trading
