DUBAI: In light of numerous reports about incidents of investment scams victimizing unsuspecting overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and other UAE residents, Ambassador Hjayceelyn M. Quintana has issued Public Advisory 11-2019 urging everyone to check the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) website for a full listing of companies not authorized to solicit funds.

“In light of the recent proliferation of alleged investment scams or schemes online where individuals or groups of individuals entice the public to invest in high-earning products, the Filipino community in UAE is advised to be more cautious when engaging in investment activities,” the ambassador said.

She said SEC, through its website, has posted several advisories warning the public about illegal investment-taking activities.

The website is http://sec.gov.ph/public-information-2/investors-education-and-information/advisories-and-notices
Quintana said all entities listed are not authorized to solicit investment from the public since these did not secure prior registration and/or license to solicit investment from SEC as prescribed by the Securities Regulation Code.

“Those who invite or recruit other people to join or invest in the ventures of the entities listed may be held criminally liable or accordingly sanctioned or penalized,” the ambassador said.

She added: “The Filipino community is hereby advised to exercise prudence before joining or investing their hard-earned money in high-earning products especially if solicited through the use of social media.”
