Important Information about Phishing

Phishing is a process used by fraudsters in an attempt to acquire your confidential information by sending out emails advertising fake job vacancies or other kinds of messages that direct you to bogus websites or phone lines. These emails or messages claim to be from a particular company, so they often look legitimate. But these messages are actually sent by fraudsters, often at random. Any information you disclose on these bogus websites or phone lines is captured by the fraudsters.

Remember:

Capital Trustees may contact you from time to time, but this communication will never ask you to enter your personal details either through an email, text message or a website.

Capital Trustees do not ask you to enter any of your security details into a pop-up screen. If you see one of these screens then it is almost certainly a scam.

You can protect yourself by treating any unsolicited emails or calls that ask for confidential information with suspicion. If in doubt about the validity of a particular message, we encourage you to forward the message onto info@capitaltrustees.ch.

Sensitive data

Capital Trustees does not seek to collect sensitive personal data (such as data revealing political opinions, religious beliefs, health or other matters) through this web site. Please note that, by providing Capital Trustees with unsolicited sensitive personal data you (explicitly) consent to our use of said data as described above.
