The Commission has today publicly released directions that
had, on 8 November 2007, been served on the person currently
known as Jason Warner effectively preventing him from securing
employment within the Finance Industry. The circumstances

Jersey Financial Services Commission takes regulatory
action against Jason Warner
Following investigations under the Financial Services (Jersey)
Law 1998 (the “Law”) into the
conduct of the person, currently known as Jason Warner, between
February and October 2007, whilst being employed and attempting
to be employed within financial service businesses in Jersey,
the Commission has issued directions under Article 23(1) of
the Law to Jason Warner concerning his conduct during that
Jason Warner’s conduct, when considered by reference
to the Law, is such that it appears to the Commission that
Jason Warner is not fit and proper to be employed within the
financial service business industry in Jersey.
Jason Warner has failed to act with integrity and propriety
• gaining employment and training in a financial service
business using a forged Bachelor of Arts Degree Certificate;
• attempting to gain employment at two further financial
service business using a forged Bachelor of Arts Degree Certificate;
• using a false name when communicating with the Commission;
• using false names when gaining and attempting to
gain employment within the Finance Industry.
The effect of the directions is to prevent Jason Warner from
being employed within a financial services business, as defined
under the Law.
Jason Warner will commit an offence as defined under Article
23(9) of the Law in the event that he seeks employment with
a financial service business in Jersey. Any person with information
to indicate that such an offence has been committed is asked
to contact the Commission.
The Commission is unable to verify at this time the true
identity of Jason Warner due to his propensity to use false
names. A list of the various names he has used is set out
