The fraudsters are not sure if they want to be Al Group Bank or Citi Bank. They are also not sure if their bogus bank operates in UAE or Switzerland, while pretending to be "licensed and regulated" in the UK. There is no bank with that name legally active in the UK. Neither in Switzerland or UAE.
Their business address is entirely made up: EC2V 7QP is a postal code in London, and not in Dubai.
