Please be aware that Goldman Sachs does not accept deposits from or offer investment products to retail clients in Australia or New Zealand. Furthermore, Goldman Sachs is not registered as an authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) in Australia with the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) and is not a registered bank in New Zealand as defined in the Reserve Bank Act 1989 (NZ) or a non-bank deposit taker in New Zealand as defined in the Non-bank Deposit Takers Act 2013 (NZ).
Fraudsters may pose as legitimate organisations, like Goldman Sachs, and create fraudulent websites, send emails, or make phone calls to solicit monetary payments. These scams are complex as the perpetrators often use genuine real employee names and replicate proprietary documentation.
To help consumers inform themselves as to whether an entity they are considering investing in could be fraudulent, a scam or unlicensed, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has published an investor alert list at https://moneysmart.gov.au/check-and-report-scams/investor-alert-list.
ASIC encourages anyone who is approached regarding a scam to report it to ASIC here: https://asic.gov.au/about-asic/contact-us/how-to-complain/report-misconduct-to-asic/
