Fraud awareness on clone sites
Clone Sites – August 2022
We are aware of websites and individuals posing as LSEG, seeking to sell short-term crypto currency products to investors. Customers subsequently requesting withdrawal of funds are then being directed to upgrade to a VIP service to scam additional funds. The websites and individuals are not affiliated with LSEG or any of its businesses.
The websites and email communications may contain a mix of legitimate information, such as logos, alongside false details such as contact phone numbers and email addresses. If you receive a suspicious email or visit a suspicious website related to LSEG or any other LSEG businesses, please let our team know by sending an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
