Warning re Web Fraud and Phishing
TPG Capital is a leading global private investment firm with over $59 billion of capital under management across a family of funds and activities in markets around the world.
We are proud of our success. But an unfortunate consequence of our size and global reputation is the misuse of our name, brands and reputation by imposters and frauds publishing fake web sites and engaging in "phishing" scams seeking personal or confidential information.
When communicating with TPG Capital through digital media, please:
Confirm you are visiting a TPG authorized web site or the web site of a TPG authorized vendor. TPG's only authorized web sites are posted through the below listed domains. No other web site domains are authorized. A list of web sites of TPG authorized vendors can be viewed by clicking on this TPG Authorized Vendors. No other vendors are authorized by TPG to communicate (including requesting or receiving) information through web sites.
Do not share your password and login ID with anyone, including anyone from TPG. Certain TPG on-line environments are private, available only to investors through secure log-in procedures. Apart from allowing you to use your password and log-in to enter an authorized site, TPG will never ask you for your password or log in information. (If you forget your password or login, we will issue you new ones.)
Do not communicate or deal with personnel who are not affiliated with an authorized office. All authorized office locations are listed on our contact page. No other office locations are authorized offices of TPG Capital.
Do not send e-mails to anyone with an address other than authorized TPG e-mail addresses. TPG Capital only uses the below listed domains for e-mail addresses. TPG does not permit our employees and authorized representatives to send or receive work related e-mails from personal accounts or any other address.
Imposters use the TPG name in furtherance of a variety of criminal activities. In particular, beware of scams purportedly affiliated with TPG that promise extraordinary returns on your investment at little to no risk. These "high-yield investment programs" are frauds and are unfortunately quite common. For more information on high-yield investment programs and how to avoid them, visit the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission webpage at http://www.sec.gov/answers/highyild.htm.
