The European Investment Bank Group is aware of fraudulent activities involving the European Investment Bank’s name (or Banque Européenne d’investissement).
These fraud schemes solicit potential investors encouraging them to provide personal data and transfer funds. In other cases, unknown organisations use websites, with web addresses unrelated to the European Investment Bank Group, that mimic the EIB website but present different email and telephone contact information.
The European Investment Bank has no involvement in such schemes, and cannot accept any responsibility for resulting loss, damage or claim.
If you have any doubts on what seems to be a non-legitimate web site or looks like an unusual request from someone claiming to work for the European Investment Bank, or if you are not sure about the legitimacy of the European Investment Bank's involvement in a specific transaction or request, do not comply with the request, send any money, and do not share any personal data.
Legitimate EIB Group web addresses are:
Legitimate email addresses from the European Investment Bank Group have the following suffixes: @eib.org;@bei.org; @ext.eib.org; @eif.org @ext.eif.org
Our headquarters are in Luxembourg.
