Banco de México warns the public of the existence of fraudulent communications, made by e-mail, in other written form or by telephone, and unduly attributed to this Central Bank, its officers or its employees.
To make their fraudulent scheme more believable and mislead potential victims, scammers often use all or part of the names of Banco de México’s officers or employees, as well as the designation of offices, departments, titles, or other terms associated with the Central Bank. Similarly, these scammers often include in their communications contact information, logos, images, websites or e-mail addresses that bear resemblance to those officially used by the Central Bank.
In this respect, it is important to remember the following:
1. Banco de México is the Central Bank of Mexico, an authority of the Mexican financial system. It has no commercial banking relations with the public, and does not carry out financial transactions with the public.
2. Banco de México does not participate in any program involving compensation or reimbursement to third parties or any other programs of the kind.
3. Therefore, Banco de México will never ask you to transfer personal funds into commercial bank accounts, or to pay costs, fees, commissions or other similar payments in connection with any programs like those mentioned in the preceding paragraph.
If you believe that you have been contacted by a scammer, we suggest that you notify the authorities charged with the investigation and prosecution of such crimes
