Anjouan: They offer bank license- Is this is a scam?.....Is the "country" recognized by the UN?...

Anjouan is NOT a bona fide country, it is not a country
at all. It is as Mr. Marchant points out part of Comoros,
(which is indeed a country). Anjouan declared self independence in 1997. Their
self independence has not been recognized by any other nation,
including Comoros. This is to be considered as a "micronation"
with no international recognition. Running a banking business
with a license in Anjouan could bring you the same trouble as
if you would use Enenkio etc.

Best Regards,

Anjouan is French-speaking and is one of three islands that form the Comoros islands, off the coast of Madagascar.

It is a bona fide country, albeit a small one.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
