However, King’s Forex Company took to Twitter confirming that the statement was regarding them and said that, “This company condemns the unprofessional statement released by Maldives Monetary Authority aimed indirectly at us which was [phrased in a way that] destroyed the goodwill, faith and good name of this company.”

In addition to MMA, a similar statement was released by Capital Market Development Authority (CMDA), warning the public against on going fraud schemes.
