FCA warns on cloning of AMAC Mortgages
Fraudsters are using the details of AMAC Mortgages Limited to try to convince people that they work for them, the FCA warned.

The clone firm uses  AMAC Mortgages Limited’s name, but is not authorised or registered with the FCA. It has been targeting people in the UK, claiming to be an authorised firm.

The details the clone uses are: AMAC Mortgages & Loan Ltd , address: 9 Charlotte Dr, Gosport, London, PO12 4GS, United Kingdom (this was a previous trading address belonging to the FCA authorised firm).

Email: customerservice@amacmrtgltd.com, guranteeloan@amacmrtgltd.com, contactus@amacmrtgltd.com, info@podoch.com, and website: www.amacmtgltd.com. Be aware that the scammers may give out other false details or mix these with some correct details of the registered firm.

This is what the FCA calls a ‘clone firm’; and fraudsters usually use this tactic when contacting people out of the blue, so the regulator warns that you should be especially wary if you have been cold called.

They may use the name of the genuine firm, the ‘firm reference number’ (FRN) that FCA has given the authorised firm, or other details.

AMAC Mortgages Limited , the FCA authorised firm that fraudsters are claiming to work for, has no association with the so called clone firm.

It is authorised to offer, promote or sell services or products in the UK and its correct details are:

Firm Reference Number: 302881, address: Hills Barns, Unit G, Appledram Lane South, Chichester, West Sussex, PO20 7EG.
Email: andy@amacmortgages.co.uk, enquiries@amacmortgages.co.uk

FCA advises you to only deal with financial firms that are authorised by the regulator, and to check the Financial Services Register to ensure they are.
