On 16 November, a release from CFATF was concerned with the Financial and Corporate Service Providers (FCSP) Bill 2020 which defines certain financial schemes as illegal. The Deputy PM explained that “these may take the form of pyramid schemes, Ponzi schemes and advance-fee schemes, among others, and many of them have plagued unsuspecting Bahamians for generations.
