Dickson’s Law Office UK / www.dicksonslawoffice.com
This notice is issued by the Financial Supervision Commission (“the Commission”) in accordance with the powers conferred upon it under Section 22 of the Financial Supervision Act 1988.
The Commission has recently received information regarding correspondence purporting to originate from a “Barrister Jimmy Rhode” claiming to represent the above entity. The Commission has also become aware of the above website purporting to represent the above entity.
The above entity claims, within the correspondence and web site, to have an address at either Dicksons House, 3, Hill Street, Douglas, Isle of Man IM1 1EF or 2nd Floor, 3, Hill Street, Douglas, Isle of Man IM1 1EF. Enquiries carried out by the Commission allow us to categorically state that such claims are completely false. The above entity does not have a presence at nor any other genuine connection whatsoever with these addresses.
Dickson’s Law Office UK is not a company incorporated within the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man. It is not registered as a foreign company having established a place of business on the Isle of Man. It is not registered as a business name on the Isle of Man.
Enquiries by the Commission have revealed that neither Barrister Jimmy Rhode nor Dickson’s Law Office UK are known to the Isle of Man Law Society.
Details of all firms regulated by the Isle of Man Law Society are available on their website.
The Commission has established no association between this entity and any genuine Isle of Man companies.
The Commission has established no genuine links between this entity and the Isle of Man.
The correspondence seen by the Commission gives telephone and fax numbers to contact the above entity. None of the numbers given relate to lines on the Isle of Man.
The Commission notes close similarities between the claims being made by the above entity and those made in relation to the bogus Rhode’s Law Office UK, which was the subject of a Public Notice issued by us on 20th April 2005.
Under the circumstances, the Commission would strongly urge persons considering dealing with the above entity to exercise the greatest possible caution before proceeding, bearing in mind the contents of this public notice.
Persons who have paid away any money in relation to purported correspondence from this entity should consider contacting their local Police Fraud Unit without delay.
