cssf warning: Cloning VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA

Montag, 21.02.2022

Warning regarding fraudulent activities where a name similar to that of the credit institution VP Bank (Luxembourg) S.A. is being misused

The Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) warns the public of the websites https://onlinevpbk.com, https://vponlinebk.com and https://bkvpsecure.com and unknown people purporting to act for “VP Bank SA”. In this context, the address, logo and other publicly available information of the Luxembourg credit institution VP Bank (Luxembourg) S.A. are misused.

These people contact without solicitation consumers predominantly in France and offer investment services (for example the subscription of “FDJ” shares), asking for credit card details and copies of identification documents. In addition, the opening of an account in Portugal and the transfer of funds to this account are also requested. When establishing contact, emails using the address format firstname.surname@onlinevpbk.com, firstname.surname@vponlinebk.com and Mail.firstname.surname@bkvpsecure.com are being used.

The CSSF would like to specify that the duly authorised Luxembourg credit institution VP Bank (Luxembourg) S.A. is not related to the persons or facts referred to in this warning. Moreover, the bank confirmed to the CSSF that it does not maintain operations nor tied agents in France nor does it ask to open accounts with third parties.
