You’re warned: Messages on social media inviting users to contact an officer of the “GROUPE GBIAFBANK” for loan facilities are fake.

The Bank of Mauritius has just issued a Notice to warn that the said “GROUPE GBIAFBANK” is neither licensed nor regulated by the Bank.  

“Members of the public are hereby informed that, pursuant to section 5(1) of the Banking Act, no person shall engage in banking business, Islamic banking business, digital banking business or private banking business in Mauritius without a banking licence issued by the Bank,” the Notice said.

A list of financial institutions duly licensed by the Bank of Mauritius is available on the Bank’s website at https://www.bom.mu/financial-stability/supervision/licensees/list-of-licensees.
