Warning Notice - Unauthorized FSCO loan
23 Dec, 2014, 16:30 ET
TORONTO, Dec. 23, 2014 /CNW/ - It has recently come to the attention of the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) that consumers have received loan offers purported to have been issued by Gonzalez Thomson Financial Services and FSCO. In order to secure the loan, consumers were asked to wire 600 euros to a bank.
FSCO does not issue loans. FSCO is a financial regulator for the province of Ontario, Canada.
Even though the correct FSCO address is indicated, agreements such as these are not legitimate documents from FSCO.
If you believe you have received an unauthorized FSCO loan agreement, or want to report purported FSCO communication that may be a contravention of the law, you can send FSCO a copy, screen-grab or photograph of the document, along with its location and the date and time you received or viewed it. This information can be sent to [email protected].
