Illegal Use of Gulf Capital's Name

Phishing Email Alert

Gulf Capital Pvt. JSC has recently become aware of a spate of fraudulent emails purporting to offer financing from, and employment at, Gulf Capital and Gulf Capital Limited (DIFC). and misusing the official Gulf Capital logo and trade name. These emails do not originate from Gulf Capital or any of our affiliates. If you have received any such email, do not click any links in the email or provide any personal information (e.g. your bank details or copies of identity documents).

There are a number of illegal advance fee scams in operation where our name and those of our Board of Directors and Senior Management are being impersonated and abused.

The Gulf Capital name, and sometimes the names of individual employees within our firm, have been used in various fraudulent scam emails, letters and phone calls. These communications typically seek to attract a victim by suggesting that project funding or a job can be obtained by paying an upfront fee. Sometimes fake documents are sent to the victim and websites mimicking the Gulf Capital name and brand are used.

Common themes include:

  • the use of similar domain names designed to appear legitimate; examples include using phishing email accounts from domains such as: @gulfcap-es.com, @gulfcp.com, @gullfinvest.com, board members name@outlook.com, @gulfunioninvestment.com, name@gullfcapital.com
  • offers of work/visa services related to employment in the Middle East upon payment of administrative, medical and other fees;
  • offers of project financing upon payment of a fake surety bond and due diligence fees;
  • forged Board of Directors resolutions approving loans, MOUs, loan agreements claiming "100% refundable" professional service fees;
  • bogus look-alike websites;
  • fake profiles on LinkedIn and My Opportunity purporting be Directors or Management of Gulf Capital;
  • "signed" and stamped contracts purporting to be provided by us regarding project financing; and
  • use of our UAE telephone numbers by criminal impersonators.

This is not an exhaustive list of scams. New schemes designed to steal the business public's money or personal data are being invented all the time or for use in other illegal activities. Please act prudently and sensibly for your own protection and take note of our Fraud Alert on our website. The perpetrators may not always request money or personal details on initial contact, but often wait until the victim has responded.

Please note that Gulf Capital and its Management and Directors have no involvement in these or any other scams, and will vigorously prosecute any violators in tandem with the concerned authorities. Our name is being used in an unauthorized and illegal way. Note that we do not use Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook or Yahoo addresses.

We recommend you delete scam emails and do not reply to scam letters, emails, calls or faxes, and do not send money to strangers. If you need to confirm with us whether a communication is genuine, please contact us at fraud-detection@gulfcapital.com.

I have read and understood the Fraud Alert, Terms & Conditions of Use and Privacy Policy. I accept the terms and condition therein and wish to proceed to the Gulf Capital website.
