Dukascopy Bank SA has issued a warning about its website’s fraudulent clone operating via the domain https://dukascopyd.swisbank.vip/c.
Dukascopy notes that this website is not controlled and does not belong to Dukascopy Bank, Dukascopy Europe, Dukascopy Japan or any other entity of Dukascopy Group.
The company advises the public not to trust any information to be found on the website https://dukascopyd.swisbank.vip/c. Investors are cautioned not to provide any personal data to this website.

This is not the first time Dukascopy has been targeted by the so-called clone firms. These are entities that abuse the details (name, logo, website address, etc) of a licensed company in order to mislead and defraud customers.
In October, Dukascopy warned of a fraudulent company named Dukascopy Bank SA of Kazakhstan LLC based and is operating in Kazakhstan. The clone pretends to act on behalf of Dukascopy Bank as part of its group but it is not controlled and does not belong to Dukascopy Bank, Dukascopy Europe, Dukascopy Japan or any other entity of Dukascopy Group.
