The BVI Financial Services Commission issued a warning about an entity called “Smiths Gore and Son’s Reserve Loan Company,” which the commission reports has been circulating a forged investment business licence. The licence falsely states it was issued by the FSC, according to the warning. The company — which has been associated with the website www.smithsgoreloan.com — has not been incorporated or registered within the territory, the FSC reported. The company’s website has claimed to facilitate online loan services for members of the public. The FSC is asking the public to reach out with any relevant information on the entity.
