Appeal for vigilance against fraudulent phone calls and e-mails in which criminals pretend to be officials of the Financial Services Agency

We have been informed that recently certain persons have been pretending to be from the Financial Services Agency or employees of the Financial Services Agency, and demanding money to be transferred to designated bank accounts.

Employees of the Financial Services Agency are not in any way involved in any private transactions with the public, including bank transfers, so please pay due vigilance regarding any suspicious contacts such as these.
