Statement on fake announcement

We are aware that a group purporting to be the Bank of England has published fake announcements today through social media and email.
Published on 07 December 2020
The Bank has engaged with media organisations which reported on these announcements, which have retracted the false reports. The Bank is also working to remove these false announcements from other websites. The Bank investigates any such mis-use of its name and will consider further legal options to require groups which so mis-use it to cease and desist.
