The CSSF draws the attention of the public to a fraud scheme in which the name of the bank authorised in Luxembourg, Quintet Private Bank (Europe) S.A., and of its employees and management bodies are being misused. The fraudsters contact people via telephone or email in order to offer them an investment product named “LICAT” or to offer them credits. The subscription documents are subsequently sent to the people concerned via a false email address that includes the name and logo of the bank.
The CSSF informs that the Luxembourg bank Quintet Private Bank (Europe) S.A. does not offer such a product to its clients. Furthermore, the bank informed the CSSF that, in the framework of its credit activity, it does not contact people, who are not its clients, by telephone or email in order to offer credits.
