Scam attempts

For several months, there has been a raft of fraudulent investment proposals and scams, usurping the name, address, logo and/or approval number of authorised players as well as the names of employees of said players (including Amundi).

Amundi calls for vigilance and reminds you of the following points:

  • Amundi and its subsidiaries never contact the general public directly to offer a financial product;
  • Amundi never raises funds directly from the general public;
  • Amundi products are systematically sold through intermediaries (private wealth advisors, bank advisors, independent financial advisors, etc.).


Amundi reminds you of the following warning signals, that should alert you:

  • You don’t know the person who is contacting you;
  •  You are promised very high returns with no risk;
  • You are asked to make a decision quickly;
  • You are asked to make a transfer to a foreign bank account.

More generally, we invite you to follow the recommendations:

  • Do not follow up unsolicited phone calls;
  •  Do not communicate your personal details (telephone, e-mail, identity documents, bank details, IBAN, proof of address, etc.) directly by e-mail or on websites whose reliability you cannot check or confirm;
  • Do not take information given by a caller on the phone at face value. The caller may not be who you think he/she is and may have impersonated a genuine employee;
  • Look up the company for which your caller claims to work (telephone, e-mail and postal address) and call the company directly to check that the caller is really one of its employees;

For further recommendations, we invite you to consult the regulator’s website. 

For further recommendations, we invite you to consult the National Crime Prevention Council, Singapore Police Force, Monetary Authority of Singapore and MoneySense’s helpful guidelines and alerts, available via these links:
