The Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) would like to warn the public not to deal with a Mr B.S Sokhela, who is purporting to be affiliated with AnBro Capital Investments (Pty) Ltd, an authorised Financial Services Provider (FSP No. 48371).
The FSCA was informed that Mr Sokhela has been operating within WhatsApp groups asking individuals to deposit funds into a bank account that does not belong to AnBro Capital Investments and claiming that the funds will be invested.
AnBro Capital Investments has confirmed that no connection exists between them and Mr Sokhela.
It is the FSCA’s view that the Mr Sokhela is conducting unregistered business and providing advisory and intermediary services without the necessary authorisation.
The FSCA again reminds consumers who wish to conduct financial services with an institution or person to check beforehand with the FSCA on either the toll free number (0800 110 443) or on www.fsca.co.za as to whether or not such institution or person is authorised to render any financial services.
