The Advisories pertain to both registered (entities registered with SEC but not authorized to solicit investment from the public) and unregistered entities (entities neither registered as a corporation or as a partnership with the SEC). Unfortunately, some of the victims of these Ponzi schemes are our Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).

SEC advises the public to exercise prudence and caution before investing money in these types of schemes, which may turn out to be Fraudulent Investment Schemes.

Attached is the list of SEC Advisories for 2019 with thirty-three (33) entities. The public is urged to report any operations of the listed entities to the Enforcement and Investor Protection Department at telephone numbers (+632) 818-6337 or (+632) 818-5324.
