The JSAs have been made aware that some Clients have recently received fraudulent communications in which they have been advised that either their Client Assets are not safe or, alternatively, that the JSAs are seeking to return their assets within the next 30 days and that an upfront bank transfer is requested in order to release their Client Assets. This information is incorrect.
ALL ASSETS HELD BY REYKER ON BEHALF OF ITS CLIENTS REMAIN SAFE AND UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE JSAs. NO PAYMENTS SHOULD BE MADE TO ANY THIRD PARTY TO RELEASE CLIENT ASSETS.
Fraudsters are using fake website domain names or email addresses to impersonate Reyker, such as ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, and may be masking their caller IDs to appear connected to Reyker, Smith & Williamson or other intermediary providers.
All Clients should remain vigilant to such fraudulent communications.
