Scam Warning - Cayman Islands Account Holders Update Email Not From CIMA

General Industry Notices
Date: Tue, 17 October 2017

The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) has become aware that several companies and individuals have received an email purportedly from CIMA, requesting that the recipient provide account and personal identity information in order to update CIMA’s client records

The email, with the subject line ‘Cayman Islands Account Holders Update’, claims the information is needed as part of the process for non-resident account holders to gain tax exemption certificates

CIMA advises its licensees, registrants, and the public that it has not issued any such request. The email is therefore a scam.

Persons receiving such an email should not respond to it and are advised to contact the Financial Crime Unit of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service on (345) 949-8797.
