Centrálny depozitár cenných papierov SR (CDCP) has been notified of a fraudulent invoice issued on behalf of CDCP and sent by an unknown sender. The invoice was issued for services related to cryptocurrency and includes CDCP´s identification details. The central securities depository is not the issuer of such invoice; thus, we would like to bring your attention to this fraudulent act. Since then, the number of fraudulent invoices has increased, as CDCP discovered.
The invoices sent in the name of CDCP include various incorrect data. The bank account to which the payment for invoice should be remitted, is not the account used by Centrálny depozitár cenných papierov SR. Invoices are issued for services related to cryptocurrency, but this type of services is in no case provided by CDCP. One of the invoices includes incorrect logo, that is not the logo of CDCP.
„We believe that unknown person attempts to extort money from individuals by misusing the CDCP data, while the invoiced amount is rather high“, says Dagmar Kopuncová, the Business Director, also in charge of company communication. “Therefore we would like to notify the citizens, should they receive one, not to pay for such invoice; they may verify the authenticity of invoice directly with central depository at email address firstname.lastname@example.org.“
Centrálny depozitár cenných papierov SR considers such act for activity damaging company‘s good reputation. Besides, the circumstances suggest committing a criminal act. „Therefore, we lodged a complaint against unknown offender with the Police District Headquarters in Bratislava I.,“ adds Dagmar Kopuncová.
