Warning about fraudulent use of the name of the charity “Youth Business International” in China

Warning about fraudulent use of the name of the charity “Youth Business International” in China.

placeholder

Youth Business International (YBI) is a charity founded in the UK, both it and HRH The Prince of Wales have worked for many years to support enterprise programmes and young entrepreneurs worldwide and continue to do so. Currently YBI has no legitimate presence in China, however it has come to our attention that a number of groups have established themselves, principally through social media, in an attempt to use the name and symbols of the YBI and HRH The Prince of Wales to fraudulently offer entrepreneurial development services and funding.

The groups perpetrating this fraud have no connection whatsoever with Youth Business International (YBI) or HRH The Prince of Wales. Any organisation claiming to represent them or using the name YBI or HRH are doing so without any authority.
