FSMA: GBL Service

The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the website


GBL Service

(cloned firm)


has usurped the identity of the listed company Group Brussels Lambert, which has itsregistered office at Marnixlaan/avenue Marnix 24, 1000 Brussels (Crossroad Bank for Enterprises number407.040.209).

The website



is thus not the official website of Group Brussels Lambert.The FSMA emphasizes that there is no connection between these two companies. Identity theft is typical of ‘clonedfirm’ fraud: fraudsters steal the identity of persons or companies that do in fact exist (such as a lawyer, anauthorized company, etc.) in order to gain credibility or even legitimacy, and thus to convince investors.The FSMA thereforestrongly advises against responding to any offer of credit made on the website GBLService and against transferring money to any account number provided by GBL Service.

Fraudulent credit offers relate to false credits offered in order to wheedle money out of consumers. The providersare fraudsters pretending to be lenders or collaborators of credit institutions.These fraudsters offer consumers credits at very attractive conditions. If a consumer wishes to take up the offer,he/she is asked to make certain payments supposedly to cover costs relating to the credit (e.g. an insurancepremium to protect the lender against the risk of the loan not being repaid, dossier fees, administrative costs, etc.).Those costs are, however, fictitious.Once those so-called costs are paid, the lender disappears without a trace, making it nearly impossible to recoverthe amounts paid.
