The Financial Supervision Commission has become aware of the above website which purports to represent the entity, Associated Nominees, claiming to have an address in the Isle of Man.

There is a genuine entity by the name of Associated Nominees Limited incorporated in the Isle of Man. Associated Nominees Limited is owned and administered by another genuine Isle of Man company that is, in turn licensed by the Commission. However, the Commission can confirm that the above mentioned website is in no way connected or associated with the genuine Associated Nominees Limited and is not a website operated by our licenceholder.

A list of all institutions licensed by the Commission is available on our website at www.fsc.gov.im.

The address contact details on the bogus website are that of the genuine Associated Nominees Limited in the Isle of Man, however, the contact e-mail address and telephone numbers listed are NOT associated with the genuine entity.

The individual names listed above have been used in correspondence and purport to represent the interests of the bogus entity Associated Nominees. These individuals are in no way connected to the genuine Associated Nominees Limited or our licenceholder.

Under the circumstances, the Commission would strongly urge persons considering dealing with this potentially fraudulent website to exercise the greatest possible caution before proceeding, bearing in mind the contents of this public notice.
