Warning over bogus course
Police are warning businesses of a fraudulent e-mail inviting them to sign up to an anti-money laundering course.
The deceptive message urges people to join an “Anti-Money Laundering and CFT Regulatory Compliance, Surveillance and Reporting” course in Hamilton.
However, once the seminar fee is paid, the course is abruptly cancelled at the last minute, with no suitable explanation or refund offered.
According to the Bermuda Police Service, the scam has also appeared in other jurisdictions, with the course location made relevant to those areas.
The bogus e-mail is from EKC Advisory Kista Alléväg 1, 174 55 Kista, Sweden, +46 7 707 918 77, with the website: https://europiaknowledgecentre.com.
The police’s Organised and Economic Crime Department recommends that local businesses conduct their own due diligence checks regarding any similar unsolicited offers.
Anyone affected by the scam or any other kind of fraud should contact the police on 295-0011.
