Scams Detection & Warnings


Scammers cheat people out of their money. The MFSA’s role is to educate consumers about scams involving financial products and services.  However, the MFSA is unable to investigate fraudsters. That is the role of the police.

Remember: if an offer is too good to be true, then it probably is. So be careful!
