    FIA Scam Alert

    It has come to the attention of the Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA) that there are individuals purporting to be representatives and/or employees of the Authority who solicit money from members of the public.

    These fraudsters claim that these payments are intended to facilitate the clearance of certain transactions that have been queried by the Authority. We wish to clarify that these claims are false, fraudulent and should be disregarded.

    The FIA does not solicit or accept any form of payment for the services we provide.
