Watchdog warning over unauthorised lender

Tuesday 12 September 2023

Jersey’s financial watchdog is warning islanders against dealing with an individual suspected to be offering lending services without the appropriate authorisation.

The Jersey Financial Services Commission said in a statement that it suspects a ‘Mr Aaron Gibbs’ to be “falsely purporting” to run a lending business when he is not registered with the Commission, which is required under the law.

The JFSC said that Mr Gibbs – who uses the email address – "has never been registered, nor applied for registration".

As a result, any business carried out by the individual is therefore a "breach" of the Proceeds of Crime (Supervisory Bodies) Law.

"Anyone who has had dealings with Mr Gibbs is asked to contact the JFSC's Enforcement Division," the JFSC added in its public statement.
