DFSA Authorised Firm Impersonated on Fake Website

The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) alerts the financial services community and members of the public to a scam where an Authorised Firm, Habib Investment Limited, has been impersonated.

The fake website also includes a fake e-mail address ([email protected]).

The DFSA strongly advises you not to visit the fake website, or send any communications to the fake e-mail address.
