Cantor Fitzgerald Ireland has recently been made aware of Fraudsters, disguising themselves as Dolmen Stockbrokers and Cantor Fitzgerald Ireland Bond. Regarding Dolmen, the fraudsters used the former Dolmen Logo and address to appear legitimate. Dolmen Stockbrokers was acquired by Cantor Fitzgerald in 2012 and no longer trades under the Dolmen name. Dolmen Stockbrokers is not an authorised entity with the Central Bank of Ireland or the Financial Conduct Authority (UK Regulator), nor are they a member of the Cantor Group. Regarding Cantor Fitzgerald Ireland Bond, the fraudsters used our logo, address and a generic email address to appear legitimate.
This is known as a ‘clone firm’ and fraudsters usually use this tactic when contacting people out of the blue. Cantor Fitzgerald Ireland would like to remind all clients to remain vigilant. Clone firm details:
