CSSF Warnings List (from 1 Jan 2022)

Caution tape for use on CSSF Warnings blogThe CSSF regularly provides CSSF warnings to the public on fake businesses, hoaxes, fraudulent claims by companies, etc. These warnings are available on the CSSF website and by e-mail. 

We advise all that have interest in the Luxembourg financial sector to subscribe to the CSSF newsletters. You will not only be updated on CSSF Warnings but on all CSSF news including CSSF circulars, upcoming legislation and specific sanctions. See ‘External links’ below for a link to the CSSF website where you can subscribe to the newsletter.

We received request for a summary of the warnings from several clients. In some instances the CSSF is also only providing the warnings in French.

Therefore we decided to add this CSSF Warnings List to our Blogs for easy reference and in English.
