The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) has become aware of an entity operating under the name of Kintaro Capital Investment which has an internet presence at https://kintarocapitalinvestment.com/. This website is making unauthorised use of details belonging to an MFSA licensed company, Kintaro Capital SICAV p.l.c (SV 500). Fraudsters are using the details of this genuine company in an attempt to deceive the public.
The MFSA wishes to alert the public, in Malta and abroad, that Kintaro Capital Investment is not a Maltese registered Company nor licensed or otherwise authorised by the MFSA to provide any financial services which are required to be licensed or otherwise authorised under Maltese law. Additionally, the Authority confirms that Kintaro Capital Investment has no association with the Maltese registered company Kintaro Capital SICAV p.l.c (SV 500).
The website https://kintarocapitalinvestment.com/ therefore appears to be a clone of the legitimate entity and the public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transaction with the false entity.
Furthermore, information available to the MFSA suggests that https://kintarocapitalinvestment.com/ is likely to be a scheme of dubious nature with a high risk of loss of money. The public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the above-mentioned entity.
The MFSA would like to remind consumers of financial services not to enter into any financial services transaction unless they have ascertained that the entity with whom the transaction is authorised to provide such services by the MFSA or another reputable financial services regulator. Investors are advised to be extra cautious when being approached with offers of financial services via unconventional channels such as telephone calls or social media.
A list of entities licensed by the MFSA can be viewed on the official website of the MFSA at https://www.mfsa.mt/financial-services-register/.
