Queensland Treasury Corporation retail bond scam alert

Scammers may be impersonating well-known domestic and global companies, including financial institutions, and offering fictitious Queensland Treasury Corporation (QTC) bonds and other investment products to members of the public. The scammers may also be impersonating QTC and using QTC’s corporate branding to offer QTC bonds.

Please be vigilant against such scams, especially if you are contacted by an unknown party with investment opportunities. QTC has not authorised any institution to offer QTC public bonds (including retail green bonds) to retail investors.

Victims are often sent fake investment materials and disclosure documents purporting to be issued by the impersonated company. In particular, look out for offers made via links in emails. If you receive such email do not reply or click on links. Unlike other versions of this type of scam, these emails sometimes contain typos. Before investing, share details including any disclosure document with your bank. This will help them check the legitimacy of the offer before transferring any funds.

In addition, exercise caution when disclosing personal information. QTC 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 (www.asic.gov.au) for further information. In addition, if you suspect that you have been scammed, please report it to ASIC.
