    Dubai FXM Ltd (www.dubaifxm.co e URL dubaifxm.co) - "DAX1001" (dax1001.com) - Global Pegasus Ltd (www.fx4lux.com) - "AirBit Club" (https://airbitclub.com e www.bitbackoffice.com)

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 6 new websites that abusively offer financial services/financial products: 4 abusive financial intermediation sites and 2 sites through which financial products are offered without a prospectus.

    The Authority availed itself of the powers deriving from the "growth decree" (Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies) regarding the blackout of the sites of abusive financial intermediaries, as well as the new power introduced by Law no. 8 of 28 February 2020 (article 4, paragraph 3-bis), regarding the blackout of the site through which the abusive offer is made.

    Below are the sites Consob has ordered to be blacked out:

    • Dubai FXM Ltd (website www.dubaifxm.co and URL dubaifxm.co);
    • "DAX1001" (website dax1001.com);
    • Global Pegasus Ltd (website www.fx4lux.com);
    • "AirBit Club" (websites https://airbitclub.com and www.bitbackoffice.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 180.

    The measures adopted by Consob can be consulted on the website www.consob.it.

    The black-out of these websites by internet service providers operating on Italian territory is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws investors' attention to the importance of adopting the greatest diligence in order to make informed investment choices, adopting common sense behaviours, essential to safeguard their savings: these include, for websites that offer financial services, checking in advance that the operator with whom they are investing is authorised, and, for offers of financial products, that a prospectus has been published.

    To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website www.consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    * * *

    Consob has also suspended for 90 days the offer to the public resident in Italy of investments of a financial nature made by "AirBit Club", and through the websites https://airbitclub.com and www.bitbackoffice.com, pursuant to Article 99, paragraph 1 b), of the Consolidated Law on Finance (Resolution no. 21309 of 25 March 2020).

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 6 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The commission availed itself of the powers resulting from the 'Decreto Crescita' ('Growth Decree'; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), on the basis of which Consob can order internet access providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

    The companies and websites are listed below:

    • Novatrades Ltd (website www.novatrades.com);
    • Game Capital ADS Limited (website https://btcglobefx.com);
    • "WORLDFXM.COM"(website https://worldfxm.com);
    • "GoldFxTrading" (GFT)(website web.goldfxtrading.com);
    • "Alphacapital"(website https://alphacapital.fm);
    • Swiss Capital Ltd (website https://capitalswissfx.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order blackouts, has thus risen to 174.

    The measures with which the aforementioned companies were ordered to terminate the abusive activity (adopted prior to the date the aforementioned "growth decree" came into force) can be viewed on the website www.consob.it..

    The black-out of these websites by internet service providers operating on the Italian market is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws investors' attention to the importance of adopting the greatest diligence in order to make informed investment choices, adopting common sense behaviours, essential to safeguard their savings: these include, first and foremost, checking in advance that the operator with whom they are investing is authorised. To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", with useful information to warn investors against abusive operators.

    Consob warning on

    Ankor Group Investment Ltd e IFXBanc Ltd (sito internet www.ifxbanc.com) - Redal LTD e Elit Property Vision LTD (sito internet https://financepro24.com) - "Terra Finance" (sito internet https://terra-finance.co) - PlatiniumfxLtd (sito internet www.platinium-fx.com) - Elit Property Vision Ltd e FxRoyal Ltd (siti internet https://richmondfx.co e https://royal-fx.com) - Blue Stone Invest Gmbh (www.bluestoneinvest.at)

    Consob exercised for the first time the new power to order internet service providers to block access from Italy to websites through which, in the absence of a prospectus, financial products are offered to the public, or offers of financial products are advertised, in breach of the sector regulations contained in the Consolidated Law on Finance (Articles 94 et seq.).

    The new power, introduced by Law no. 8 of 28 February 2020(Article 4, paragraph 3-bis), complements the power already envisaged in the "growth decree" (Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019(Article 36(2-terdecies) on the blackout of the sites of abusive financial intermediaries.

    This expands the "toolbox" available to Consob, so as to strengthen its powers to combat online financial abuse.

    Below are the sites Consob has ordered to be blacked out:

    • Ankor Group Investment Ltd and IFXBanc Ltd (website www.ifxbanc.com).
    • Redal LTD and Elit Property Vision Ltd (websitehttps://financepro24.com).
    • "Terra Finance" (website https://terra-finance.co);
    • Platiniumfx Ltd (website www.platinium-fx.com);
    • Elit Property Vision Ltd and FxRoyal Ltd (websites https://richmondfx.coand https://royal-fx.com);
    • Blue Stone Invest Gmbh(website www.bluestoneinvest.at).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 168.

    The measures adopted by Consob can be consulted on the website www.consob.it.

    The black-out of these websites by internet service providers operating on Italian territory is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws investors’ attention to the importance of adopting the greatest diligence in order to make informed investment choices, adopting common sense behaviours, essential to safeguard their savings: these include, for websites that offer financial services, checking in advance that the operator with whom they are investing is authorised, and, for offers of financial products, that a prospectus has been published.

    To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website www.consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    * * *

    In addition, pursuant to Article 99(1)(d) of Legislative Decree no. 58/1998, the Commission has prohibited the offer to the public of investments of a financial nature made by Blue Stone Invest Gmbh also through the site www.bluestoneinvest.at (Decision no. 21295 of 5 March 2020).

    * * *

    Consob has ordered the same subjects to cease the violation of Article 18 of Legislative Decree no. 58 of 24 February 1998, pursuant to article 7-octies, letter b) of the same legislative decree:

    The Cypriot supervisory authority, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) has updated its list of companies and websites offering investment services on forex markets without authorisation. The complete list is published on the CySEC website at the following address: https://www.cysec.gov.cy/en-GB/complaints/non-approved-domains/.

    Consob warning on

    Prime-Investfx Ltd (sito internet www.prime-investx.com) - "4FX Royal" (sito internet https://4fxroyal.com) - GlobalFx Ltd (sito internet https://globalfxs.org) - Light Media Ltd (sito internet www.wincapitalpro.com) - "AJ Asset" (siti internet https://aj-asset.com e https://platform.aj-asset.com) - "VirtualStocks" (sito internet https://virtualstocks.io) - UMO Finance Ltd (sito web www.umo-finance.com) - www.umoperte.dazeroamarketer.com (Alberto Simoni)

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 7 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The commission availed itself of the powers resulting from the 'Decreto Crescita' ('Growth Decree'; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), on the basis of which Consob can order internet access providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

    The companies and websites are listed below:

    • Prime-Investfx Ltd (website www.prime-investx.com);
    • "4FX Royal" (website https://4fxroyal.com);
    • GlobalFx Ltd (website https://globalfxs.org);
    • Light Media Ltd (website www.wincapitalpro.com);
    • "AJ Asset" (websites https://aj-asset.comand https://platform.aj-asset.com);
    • VirtualStocks" (website https://virtualstocks.io).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order blackouts, has thus risen to 161.

    The measures with which the aforementioned companies were ordered to terminate the abusive activity can be viewed on the website www.consob.it..

    The black-out of these websites by internet service providers operating on the Italian market is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws investors' attention to the importance of paying the utmost attention in order to make informed investment choices, focusing on those common sense behaviours - such as, for example, checking that the operator with whom you are investing is authorised - that are essential if you really want to safeguard and, hopefully, see a return. To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", with useful information to warn investors against abusive operators.

    The Commission has also suspended for a period of 90 days:

    - the offering to the public resident in Italy of investments of a financial nature made by UMO Finance Ltd without the required authorisation, also through the website www.umo-finance.com pursuant to article 99, paragraph 1, letter d) of the Consolidated Law on Finance (Resolution no. 21279 of 26 February 2020);

    - advertising, through the site www.umoperte.dazeroamarketer.com, linked to Mr Alberto Simoni, of the offering to the public of investments of a financial nature promoted by UMO Finance Ltd, without the required authorisations, pursuant to article 101, paragraph 4, letter b) of the Consolidated Law on Finance (Resolution no. 21280 of 26 February 2020).

    Consob has ordered the same subjects to cease the violation of Article 18 of Legislative Decree no. 58 of 24 February 1998, pursuant to article 7-octies, letter b) of the same legislative decree:

    Consob warning on

    Kronosinvestit Ltd (sito internet www.kronosinvestit.co) - “Tfx25” (sito internet https://tfx25.com) - Marketsbull Ltd (sito internet www.marketsbull.com) - "Royalbanc" (sito internet https://royalbanc.io) - "Pro Star" (siti internet https://finantik.com e https://client.trading-dashboard.com - EasyTrade55 Ltd (sito internet https://easytrade55.com)

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 7 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The commission availed itself of the powers resulting from the ‘Decreto Crescita’ (‘Growth Decree’; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), on the basis of which Consob can order internet access providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

    The companies and websites are listed below:

    • Kronosinvestit Ltd (website www.kronosinvestit.co);
    • "Tfx25" (website https://tfx25.com);
    • Marketsbull Ltd (website www.marketsbull.com);
    • "Royalbanc" (website https://royalbanc.io);
    • "Pro Star" (websites https://finantik.com and https://client.trading-dashboard.com);
    • EasyTrade55 Ltd (website https://easytrade55.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order blackouts, has thus risen to 154. The measures by which the aforementioned companies have been ordered to cease their abusive activities can be consulted on the website www.consob.it. The black-out of these websites by internet service providers operating on the Italian market is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws the attention of savers to the importance of paying the utmost attention in order to make informed investment choices, focusing on those common sense behaviours - such as checking that the operator with whom you are investing is authorised - that are essential if you really want to safeguard and, hopefully, see a return. To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website www.consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", with useful information to warn investors against abusive operators.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission- SEC, the US supervisory authority, warns savers that fraudsters often use the latest news to trick investors (https://www.sec.gov/oiea/investor-alerts-and-bulletins/ia_coronavirus).

    The SEC has become aware of a series of promotions that have appeared on the internet and on social media regarding the possibility that products or services of listed companies may be able to prevent, detect or cure the coronavirus and the possibility that this could lead to an uncontrolled increase in the value of the shares of certain listed companies. These promotions often take the form of so-called 'research reports' and contain a specific 'target price' forecast for the shares in question. The SEC invites investors to be wary of such promotions and to reflect on their substantially fraudulent nature.

    - Pay attention to information that states that products or services of a specific company are capable of stopping the coronavirus, in particular information related to shares in low capitalisation (micro-cap) companies. These uncontrolled rumours may be part of fraudulent schemes to artificially increase the value of the shares (pump-and-dump schemes).

    - You risk losing large sums of money if you invest in a company described incorrectly or unreliably. If you are suspended from trading in the securities of the company in question, you may risk not being able to resell the shares purchased.

    - Suggestions, complaints or reports of suspected fraud or fraudulent actions or scams can be submitted online at https://www.sec.gov/tcr.

    Although coronavirus-related misrepresentations may relate to any company, the shares of microcaps may be particularly vulnerable to fraud risks for investors, including coronavirus-related scams. Micro-cap shares are low-priced shares issued by smaller companies.

    In many cases, there is a lack of publicly available and public domain information about the managers, products and services and the financial situation of these micro-cap companies. This can make it easier for fraudsters to spread false information about the company and thus to profit from it at the expense of poorly informed investors.

    For example, in a "pump-and-dump" scheme, promoters "inflate" or increase the price of a company's shares by putting optimistic, but often false, rumours into circulation.

    The rumours drive many investors to buy these securities. Subsequently, the fraudsters or their accomplices quickly "get rid" of their shares before the hype ends. Typically, once the scammers have profited from their sales, the share price falls and the investors left with the shares end up losing most of the money invested.

    When investing in any company, including those that claim to focus on coronavirus-related products and services, it is essential to make a thorough assessment of the investment and keep in mind that the masters of investment fraud often exploit every single crisis for profit.

    Consob warning on

    ForTradersFX Ltd (www.fortradersfx.com) - Gembell Limited Services - PO TRADE LTD - Tifiya Group s.r.o. (www.pocketoption.com) - FAH Investment LTD (www.web.cryptozone24.com) - Muller Enterprise Ltd (www.aurumpro.co, https://aurumprofin.cc e https://aurum-pro-finance.cc) - FSM Smart Ltd (www.fsmsmarts.com) 

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 7 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The commission availed itself of the powers resulting from the ‘Decreto Crescita' (‘Growth Decree'; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), on the basis of which Consob can order internet access providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

    The companies and websites are listed below:

    • ForTradersFX Ltd (www.fortradersfx.com);
    • Gembell Limited Services – PO TRADE LTD – Tifiya Group s.r.o. (www.pocketoption.com);
    • FAH Investment LTD (www.web.cryptozone24.com);
    • Muller Enterprise Ltd (www.aurumpro.co, https://aurumprofin.cc and https://aurum-pro-finance.cc);
    • FSM Smart Ltd (www.fsmsmarts.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order blackouts, thus rises to 131.

    The measures with which the aforementioned companies were ordered to terminate the abusive activity can be viewed on the website www.consob.it.

    The black-out of these websites by internet service providers operating on the Italian market is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws investors' attention to the importance of paying the utmost attention in order to make informed investment choices, focusing on those common sense behaviours - such as, for example, checking that the operator with whom you are investing is authorised - that are essential if you really want to safeguard and, hopefully, see a return. To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", with useful information to warn investors against abusive operators.

    The Cypriot supervisory authority, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySec), has informed investors that a "City Group Italy Banking Group", a clone of the American banking group of the same name, is fraudulently contacting savers by e-mail claiming that it has received authorisation from Consob to set up an "Investor Compensation Fund" to recover investments lost through online trading. CySec has warned that the content of these messages is false. A similar warning was previously issued by Consob in July 2019 (see "Consob Informa" no. 25/2019).

    Consob warning on

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 16 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The commission availed itself of the powers resulting from the ‘Decreto Crescita’ (‘Growth Decree’; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), on the basis of which Consob can order internet access providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

    The companies and websites are listed below:

    • Allianz Capital Ltd (www.capitalallianze.com);
    • WebNet Ltd (www.2dots.it);
    • “Cleavesecurities” (www.cleavesecurities.com);
    • Game Capital Ads Limited (www.welttrades.com and www.it.welttrades.com);
    • BC Profit2019 (www.bcprofit2019.com);
    • Terratech Ltd(www.swissfingroup.com);
    • Dubai FXM Ltd (www.dubaifxm.trade and www.dubaifxm.trading);
    • “VirtualStocks” (www.virtualstocks.co and www.virtualstocks.cc);
    • “RoyalFunds” (www.royalfunds.co and www.royalfunds.cc);
    • Lctrade Ltd (www.lctrade.net);
    • Arrow Capital Ltd (www.lvgrowmarkets.com and www.partners.lvgrowmarkets.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order blackouts, thus rises to 117. The measures with which the aforementioned companies were ordered to terminate the abusive activity can be viewed on the website www.consob.it.

    The black-out of these websites by internet service providers operating on the Italian market is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    * * *

    Consob has ordered the same subjects to cease the violation of Article 18 of Legislative Decree no. 58 of 24 February 1998, pursuant to article 7-octies, letter b) of the same legislative decree:

    * * *

    Pursuant to Article 99, paragraph 1, letter d) of Legislative Decree no. 58/98, Consob has also banned the offering to the public of investments of a financial nature by Itrade Clubs Corp also through the website www.site.itradeclubs.com/it (Resolution no. 21196 of 18 December 2019). The activity had already been suspended with Resolution no 21093 of 25 September last (see “Consob informa” no. 33/2019).

    Priminvestfx Ltd (www.priminvestfx.com) - Goldtech Media Services Oü (www.fin-fnr.com) - Globalix Ltd (www.global-x.io) - Blue Stone Invest Gmbh (www.bluestoneinvest.at)

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 3 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The commission availed itself of the powers resulting from the ‘Decreto Crescita' (‘Growth Decree'; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), on the basis of which Consob can order internet access providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

    The companies and websites are listed below:

    • Priminvestfx Ltd (www.priminvestfx.com);
    • Goldtech Media Services Oü (www.fin-fnr.com);
    • Globalix Ltd (www.global-x.io).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order blackouts, thus rises to 101. The measures with which the aforementioned companies were ordered to terminate the abusive activity can be viewed on the website www.consob.it.

    The black-out of these websites by internet access providers operating on the Italian market is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws the attention of savers to the importance of paying the utmost attention in order to make informed investment choices, focusing on those common sense behaviours - such as checking that the operator with whom you are investing is authorised - that are essential if you really want to safeguard and, hopefully, see a return.

    To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website www.consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", with useful information to warn investors against abusive operators.

    Consob has also suspended the offering to the public of investments of a financial nature by Blue Stone Invest Gmbh also through the website www.bluestoneinvest.at, as a precautionary measure, for a period of 90 working days, within the meaning of article 99, paragraph 1, letter b), of Legislative Decree no. 58/98, (Resolution no. 21185 of 11 December 2019).

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 5 websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The commission availed itself of the powers resulting from the ‘Decreto Crescita’ (‘Growth Decree’; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, article 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), on the basis of which Consob can order internet access providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

    The companies and websites are listed below:

    • Redal Ltd, Elit Property Vision Ltd and Richmondfx Ltd (https://richmondfx.com);
    • Globalfx Ltd (https://globalfx.org);
    • Rmt 500 Ltd (https://rmt500.com);
    • Premium Solutions Ltd (https://thepremiumbrokers.com);
    • Aj Asset Management (www.ajassetmanagement.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July last, when Consob got the power to order blackouts, thus rises to 88. The measures with which the aforementioned companies were ordered to terminate the abusive activity can be viewed on the website www.consob.it.

    The black-out of these websites by internet access providers operating on the Italian market is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the black-out to come into effect.

    Consob draws the attention of savers to the importance of paying the utmost attention in order to make informed investment choices, focusing on those common sense behaviours - such as checking that the operator with whom you are investing is authorised - that are essential if you really want to safeguard and, hopefully, see a return. To this end, Consob would remind you that there is a section on the homepage of its website www.consob.it entitled "Be aware of fraud!", with useful information to warn investors against abusive operators.
