TCV Bond Scam Alert

ASIC warns investors of imposter bond scams
ASIC is warning investors of a rise in imposter bond investment offers. Scammers pretend to be associated with well-known domestic and international financial service firms and offer high yield bond investments to investors. ASIC has recently become aware of two such scam operations targeting investors in Australia and others in countries such as the UK.

If you are offered a financial investment, do your own independent research, including appropriate online searches, before investing and ensure you are depositing money into a bank account which matches the entity you are investing with.

Please be vigilant against such scams, especially if you are contacted by an unknown party with investment opportunities.

In addition, exercise caution when disclosing personal information. TCV will never call you and ask you to provide personal information or your bank account details.

Please see the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) website ( for further information. In addition, if you suspect that you have been scammed, please report it to ASIC.

Treasury Corporation of Victoria shall not be held liable or responsible for any claims, losses, damages or other expenses resulting from or in any way connected to the actions of scammers.
