Fake or cloned websites are becoming increasingly common.
These fraudulent websites and their content are not legitimate and have been created fraudulently using authorized cloned company details to convince unsuspecting consumers that they are genuine.
They may look like the real thing and may even have a web address that is very similar to the AllianceBernstein address. On closer inspection, however, the differences can be spotted, which it is why it is so important to remain vigilant.
When accessing the AllianceBernstein website, please check the URL address to ensure it correctly identifies AllianceBernstein https://www.alliancebernstein.com. The letters ‘https’ will be displayed in front of the website address in the browser's navigation bar and you can click on the padlock symbol to reveal our Registration Certificate which has been issued by DigiCert Inc., a leading provider of security solutions.
To protect our brand integrity and the interests of our investors, we regularly monitor websites that register and use similar URL addresses to ours. Where we suspect fraudulent activity, we take appropriate steps to ensure the early detection and removal of these malicious websites.
We also recommend that you check the details provided by local regulatory authorities. Many also provide useful advice as to what you need to look out for and how to check whether a company is authentic.
