Scam Attempt Notice

Corporate - Scam attempts

There has been fraudulent investment proposals and scams, usurping the name, address, logo of a number of authorised institutions as well as the names of employees of institutions (including Amundi and its subsidiaries).

Amundi calls for vigilance and reminds you of the following points:

  • Amundi and its subsidiaries never contact the general public directly to offer a financial product;
  • Amundi never raises funds directly from the general public;
  • Amundi products are systematically sold through intermediaries (private wealth advisors, bank advisors, independent financial advisors, etc.).


An investment scam typically offers an investment opportunity that is too good to be true. Amundi reminds you of the following warning signals that should alert you:

  • You don’t know the person who is contacting you;
  •  You are promised very high returns with no risk;
  • You are asked to make a decision quickly;
  • You are asked to make a transfer to a foreign bank account.

More generally, we invite you to follow the following recommendations:

  • Do not follow up unsolicited phone calls;
  •  Do not communicate your personal details (telephone, e-mail, identity documents, bank details, IBAN/SWIFT codes, proof of address, etc.) directly by e-mail or on websites whose reliability you cannot check or confirm;
  • Do not take information given by a caller on the phone at face value. The caller may not be who you think he/she is and may have impersonated a genuine employee;
  • Look up the company for which your caller claims to work (telephone, e-mail and postal address) and call the company directly to check that the caller is really one of its employees;

For further recommendations, we invite you to consult the Securities Commission Malaysia’s (‘SC’) helpful guidelines and alerts, available via these links:
