Online Investment Bank
10 Nov 11
The Financial Services Commission has today issued a warning to the
public regarding Online Investment Bank.
This entity has been operating a website on which it claims to be a "bank
established by Gibraltar offshore company (sic) and uniting the
talented financial professionals who have long been operating in best
investment markets worldwide."
The site provides an incomplete address of an office building in
Gibraltar, the PO Box of a regulated firm and the telephone number of a
non-financial services business in Gibraltar, none of which have any
connection to what the FSC believes is a bogus entity which may have set up
the website with intent to defraud investors.
Online Investment Bank is not regulated by the FSC, or licensed under the
Financial Services (Banking) Act or any other Supervisory Acts to carry on
deposit taking or any other financial services business in or from within
Gibraltar. The Register of Companies in Gibraltar has no record of any
company with that name.
People are able to verify whether a firm is licensed by the Gibraltar
FSC, by checking the
"Regulated Entities Search" section on our website at
Any persons who are already involved in any dealings with the above
entity and have concerns, should contact the Manager, Enforcement on +350
