False information regarding the sale of e-kronas

On certain websites and in social media, false information is circulating claiming that the Riksbank is selling e-kronas.

The Riksbank has also received information from people saying that they have received telephone calls from companies claiming to sell e-kronor on behalf of the Riksbank. However, it has not been decided yet whether the Riksbank will issue an e-krona and it is not possible to buy e-kronor.

The Riksbank urges all those who are subject to these and similar fraud attempts to report their occurrence to the police. The Riksbank also files its own police reports when fraud attempts directed at the Riksbank are detected.
