Scams and the CFCA

by | May 25, 2021 | News | 0 comments

With the proliferation of scams around the world impacting consumers, businesses, and organisations, it is not a huge surprise that the CFCA name or logo would not be misused for fraudulent purposes by criminals at some time.

Sadly that time has come. Over the last few weeks, we have been contacted by a number of individuals who in their dealings with third parties on the topic of cryptocurrency have come across a close representation of our name (Crypto Fraud Control Association) and the misuse of our logo.

We have posted a notification on our website and sadly can only advise the individuals who have been impacted by the fraud to contact their local law enforcement.

We must all be vigilant in these times, if you notice any misrepresentation of the CFCA name, brand or individuals involved in CFCA, please ensure you contact fraud@cfca.org
