The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) alerts the financial services community and the public about a fraudulent scam promoted by “Skyo Microfinance Bank Limited” which offers easy loan approvals in return for a fee to be transferred to them.

Skyo Microfinance Bank Limited:
• Asks individuals to transfer a fee to finance an insurance policy against the loan in addition to the administrative fees.
• Displays a false Certificate of Incorporation purportedly issued by the DFSA.

A copy of the false Certificate of Incorporation can be viewed here.
