It has come to the attention of the Commission that a website is being operated via the website URL: which is fraudulently purporting to be the Aruba Financial Services Commission (hereinafter referred to as the 'fraudulent website’).

The Commission hereby informs the public that the Commission has no affiliation with and is in no way connected to the fraudulent website or the Aruba Financial Services Commission. Further, the fraudulent website and its operators are not and have never been authorised by the Commission to use the information published on the Commission’s website.

Members of the public are advised to exercise extreme caution if solicited at any time to visit or conduct business through the fraudulent website with URL; the public is also advised not to click on any of its tabs.

The Commission is diligently working with the relevant authorities to have the fraudulent website decommissioned.
