Comments: The FMA has had a report about an imposter of J Rothchild contacting New Zealanders through Facebook offering investment opportunities. 

There is a current alert on the official J Rothchild Capital Management website, saying it is aware of other websites using the J Rothschild name to offer investments.  

After the New Zealand investor made an initial investment, the imposter website sent documentation claiming to be from the FMA, describing a mandatory annual compliance fee for New Zealand investors of $200.

The FMA has not introduced any such compliance fee for New Zealand investors, this is a scam. 

If you have paid this fee, we recommend you contact your bank immediately.
