It has been recently noticed that the name of MENAFATF or persons related to the MENAFATF are being used for fraudulent purposes; some people are asked, allegedly by MENAFATF, to pay fees for fictitious services relating to the verification of the origin of funds they wish to transfer. They are told that if the customer fails to pay such fees, the funds will be frozen. In fact, MENAFATF does not provide any such services, nor does it request fees or have by any means the capacity to freeze any funds or accounts. In addition, any approach using the name of MENAFATF in relation to de-freezing funds or payment of fees is a fraud and should be immediately reported to the local competent authorities.
