Investor Warning: Fraudulent Aberdeen Asset Management websites targeting Chinese investors

It has come to our attention that persons unrelated to Aberdeen Asset Management Group (Aberdeen Group) have been attempting to use the “Aberdeen Asset Management” name and branding, along with details of some of our staff including photos, to seek to perpetrate internet fraud. Unauthorised Aberdeen Group websites have been established, and may be attempting to sell financial products online and/or to encourage members of the public to provide personal information.

We are aware of the following fraudulent URL:
www.aberdeen-asset.cc
http://www.xgabtz.com

Please be aware that such websites (and any material, publication or communication contained within them) do not relate to any of the Aberdeen Group's products and have not been established or authorised by the Aberdeen Group. These are fraudulent and as soon as we become aware of such sites we notify the relevant regulatory authorities accordingly, and also work with internet service providers to block the fraudulent use of our domain name(s).

The only websites that are established and authorised by the Aberdeen Group in China (and Hong Kong SAR) are:
www.aberdeen-asset.cn (China)
www.aberdeen-asset.com.hk (Hong Kong SAR)

If you access a website that does not appear to be one of the above official Aberdeen websites, or if you have any other doubt over the veracity of a website, a publication or a person purporting to work for an Aberdeen Group company, do not offer any personal information, end your call or session, and contact our client services team using the details on our Contact Us page.
