    Bank Monarch - Fake Scam Bank in the UK

    http://www.bankmonarch.com

    Fake bank used to scam an Indian using a Malaysian owned US IBOE - apparently used in many scams - more information on this scam bank or death of their site would be nice....

    It has a bogus login that can be bypassed using a google search for all pages in the bankmonarch.com domain.

    The WhoIs records are blank

    Scam evidence can be downloaded here http://www.docstoc.com/docs/84024949/fake-iboe

    Dude,

    See: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pages/Doing/Re...internet.shtml

    also:

    https://www.monarchbank.com/mbindex.php

    http://www.bba.org.uk/about-us/entry/bank-monarch-ltd

    Guess there are ongoing investigations.

    Many of these and the likes survive purely in the cracks of the law.

    bank monarch

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a real estate developer in Dubai, UAE.
    Recently some people approached me saying that they are the representative of Bank Monarch and they offered my loan for one of my projects. They showed me contract and so on. They want also Euro 250,000 the moment I receive the BCL from the bank. Can you please tell me if you know anything about their bank.
    Thanks

    Ask for the bank's country of incorporation, registered company address and regulator. This will be enough to deter a lot of fraudsters.

    If it is the UK based company, Templar's research shows that it is unauthorised and unregulated: as such I would not pay them or their brokers any up front fees at all whatsoever.

    In fact I probably wouldn't deal with them at all. In the unlikely event you do receive a loan from them, being unregulated means the money will not comply with anti money laundering regulations and you may unwittingly end up laundering money from criminal origins.

    Finally, if the loan is based on a financial instrument, it won't be worth the paper it's written on when issued by an unrated, unregulated bank.

    If it isn't the UK entity, I'll need more details to help.

    ALERT

    We, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) have today published this statement to warn investors against dealing with unauthorised firms.
    The purpose of this statement is to tell members of the public that an organisation identifying itself to UK individuals as:

    Bank Monarch Limited
    Company registration number: 06727679
    Registered office: 9 Devonshire Square, London EC2M 4YF
    Alternative contact address: 37th Floor, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AA
    Tel: 0203 086 7070 Telefax: 0203 004 1181
    Email: info@bankmonarch.com Website: www.bankmonarch.com


    is NOT authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) to carry on a regulated activity in the UK. Regulated activities include, among other things: accepting deposits by way of business; and advising on, dealing in and arranging deals in investments.

    This full alert is added further to the existing alert against “Bank Monarch Ltd (www.bankmonarch.com)” already on the FSA’s website warning list.

    What does this mean for you?

    If you are an investor, you should be aware that the Financial Ombudsman Service and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme are not available if you deal with an unauthorised company or individual.

    How can you check whether a firm is authorised?
    To find out whether a company or individual is authorised, go to the FSA Register Check Service at www.fsa.gov.uk/Pages/register/
