Mazyad Capital LLC Falsely Claims to be Authorised by the DFSA

The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) alerts the financial services community and members of the public to false claims made by Mazyad Capital LLC (Mazyad).

Mazyad falsely claims to be authorised and regulated by the DFSA and registered in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). 

Mazyad also uses the following fraudulent documents:
• a “Licence Notice” purportedly issued by the DFSA; and
• a “Certificate of Incorporation” and “Commercial Licence” purportedly issued by the DIFC Registrar of Companies. 

A copy of the fraudulent documents can be viewed here

Further, Mazyad falsely claims to hold DFSA Licence Number F001976.

The DFSA advises that Mazyad is not, and has never been:
• authorised or regulated by the DFSA;
• incorporated in the DIFC; or
• licensed by or registered by the DIFC Registrar of Companies.

Further, the DFSA advises that DFSA Licence Number F001976 belongs to a legitimate DFSA Authorised Firm which is not associated with Mazyad in anyway.

The DFSA strongly advises that you do not communicate with Mazyad, and under no circumstances should you send money to Mazyad or any person connected with Mazyad.
