The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) has become aware of recent scam emails targeting persons in Malta offering various financial services including unsecured loans at beneficial rates.

The MFSA wishes to caution the public against replying to such emails and to refrain from providing personal details to unknown persons and entities.
