The commission’s website is www.jerseyfsc.org but the other one, www.jerseyfsc.com, is entitled the Jersey Financial Scandals Collection and makes claims about the alleged involvement of Jersey regulated companies in financial cases across the world.
As a result of about 20 e-mails meant for the regulator being sent to the wrong domain name, the Jersey Financial Services Commission has issued a statement reminding people its correct e-mail address is jerseyfsc.org and not jerseyfsc.com.
The commission say that e-mails should be addressed using the following convention – email@example.com.
General e-mails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The website jerseyfsc.com has been at the centre of controversy.
The commission’s director of corporate services Mark Whiteley said the .com address was believed to be owned by former Centre Party election candidate Adrian Walsh.
However, former Senator Ted Vibert bought the domain names jfsc.com, jfsc.co.uk, jerseyfsc.com and jerseyfsc.net at one point but later sold them back to Mr Walsh, who was then a fellow member of the Jersey Democratic Alliance.
