Instagram page falsely claims that Company is regulated by the DFSA

The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) alerts the financial services community and members of the public about a website which falsely claims that a company called "Relish Capital" is regulated by the DFSA.

The Instagram page with the handle “relish_capital” states in its biography and on a number of images posted on the page that it is authorised by the DFSA.  The website associated with the firm is www.relishcapital.co/home.

The DFSA confirms that the information on the Instagram page and website is false, and that no company called “Relish Capital” is regulated by the DFSA.

The DFSA strongly advises that you do not respond to any communication regarding the scam, and under no circumstances should you send or give any money to any party in connection with the scam.
