Fraudsters purporting to be SEB

It has been brought to our attention that fraudsters are purporting to be Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) London Branch and soliciting potential investors to purchase SEB bonds.  The fraud is sophisticated, and gives the impression of the involvement of Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) London Branch.  

The fraudsters are using or giving out the following details as part of their tactics to scam people in the UK:

Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (“SEB”) (“clone firm’’)

Address: EC4V 5ER

Telephone: +44 208 123 2923

Email: admin@sebgroup.pw

Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) London Branch has no association with the clone firm. It is authorised to offer, promote or sell services or products in the UK and its correct details are:

Firm Name: Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) London Branch

Firm Reference Number: 124943

Address: One Carter Lane, London EC4V 5AN, UK

Telephone: +44 207 246 4000

Furthermore, you should note that Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) London Branch does not sell bonds to individual investors, and therefore would not contact you on this matter.

Be aware that the fraudsters may give out other false details or mix these with our firm.  If you are approached by the clone firm, contact the FCA Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768 or contact the Compliance department of  Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) London Branch.  You should also be aware that if you give money to a clone firm, you will not be covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service or the depositary protection scheme.
