    ADGM’s FSRA issues alert concerning fraudulent website - Sterwa Holdings

    ADGM FSRA 24/06/2024

    The Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) wishes to alert the financial services community and members of the public about the fraudulent nature and false claims made on the website at URL: https://sterwaholdings.com/index.html (the “Website”).

    It has come to the FSRA’s attention that the Website falsely imitates the website of an entity that is regulated by the FSRA.

    The FSRA is concerned that the Website may mislead potential investors and the public to believe that the Website belongs to an entity regulated by the FSRA.

    The FSRA advises the public that the Website is not associated with an entity regulated by the FSRA and that the operators of the Website are not licensed or authorised to carry on Regulated Activities in or from the ADGM.

    The FSRA believes that the Website has been created for the purpose of conducting fraud, by harvesting personal identifiable information and other credentials.

    For information on how to report directly to the FSRA concerns in relation to potential fraudulent websites that purport to financial services in the ADGM, please refer to the FSRA’s Complaints Portal, which can be accessed here. For more information on how to report cybercrime to the relevant authorities, please refer to: Report cybercrimes online.

    Only firms authorised by the FSRA can undertake Regulated Activities in the ADGM.

    To determine if an entity has been granted a Financial Services Permission by the FSRA to carry on Regulated Activities in or from ADGM, you can search the FSRA’s Public Register.
