    Consob warning on

    "Pro Star" (www.golden-cfd.com) - "European Trade 24" e "Allegra TM" (www.eutrade24.com) - Maginito Services Ltd e NBG Market (KI) Limited (www.nbgmarket.com) - "Mistertrader" e "Redfin Capital" (https://imrtrader.com, www.redfin.capital) - Arbistar 2.0, S.L. (arbistar.com e app.arbistar.com)

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

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

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

    - ForTradersFx Ltd (website www.for-tradersfx.com);

    - "Mibtrades" (website www.mibtrades.com);

    - "Iacademy" (website www.iacademy.io and url iacademy.io);

    - GAM Group Ltd and Llc Ic Prime Broker (website https://marketsfx.co);

    - Hbc Market Ltd and Zentrale Zahlstelle Ltd (website www.hbc-markets.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 335.

    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 on the website www.consob.it there is a section on the homepage "Be aware of fraud!", providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    La Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa (The National Commission for Companies and the Stock Exchange) reports that Capitalgest Srl based in Brescia is not authorised to offer financial products off-site such as bonds issued by the Swiss company Valtech Sa to the public (using agents) of investors resident in Italy.

    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:

    - ForTradersFx Ltd through the website www.for-tradersfx.com(resolution no. 21592 of 19 November 2020);

    Reporting by Québec supervisory authorities (AMF and OPC):

    The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) and the Office de la Protection du Consommateur (OPC) wish to warn the public against false money lenders who use social media to recruit "clients". They turn to people with promises of personal loans, cars or mortgages at very interesting rates to scam them by asking for high commissions, payable in advance by bank transfer. In the process, they collect highly sensitive personal information, such as victims' bank information. Fraudsters claim to be affiliated with recognized financial institutions, but the company names used are not registered in Quebec. Their websites are often registered outside Quebec. These organizations have obviously neither an AMF certificate nor an OPC permit.

    Reported by the CYSEC:

    The Cypriot supervisory authority, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission - CYSEC, advises retail investors that it has updated the list of the websites offering investment services in 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

    Consob has ordered the blackout of 7 new websites that abusively offer financial services/financial products: 5 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 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:

    • "Pro Star" (website www.golden-cfd.com);
    • "European Trade 24" and "Allegra TM" (website www.eutrade24.com);

    • "Mistertrader" and "Redfin Capital" (websiteshttps://imrtrader.com and www.redfin.capital);

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 330.

    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.

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

    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 the attention of investors to the importance of using the utmost diligence in order to make investment choices in full awareness, adopting common-sense behaviour, which is essential to safeguard their savings: these include prior verification, for sites offering financial services, that the operator through whom the investment is made is authorised and, for financial product offers, that the prospectus has been published.

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

    The Belgian supervisory authority, the FSMA, warns savers that some companies in Belgium sell, through a pyramid structure, trading and training software mainly for forex trading in CFD (contract for difference) and cryptocurrency. The term generally used for this technique is "MLM" (multi-level marketing), where consumers are encouraged to bring new members. In return for this, they receive compensation in the form of a commission or a discount on the price of the software package or the subscription price. The FSMA draws investors' attention to the fact that investments accessible through software are often not subject to financial supervision (alternative investments such as precious metals or virtual money) or their distribution in Belgium is prohibited (some derivatives such as forex, CFD and binary options). The FSMA also warns savers against fraud in debt collection. Debt collection fraud is carried out by fraudsters by offering to help victims of online investment fraud to get compensation for their losses. Sometimes the fraud takes the form of an offer to buy the victims' worthless securities or to initiate legal proceedings on their behalf.

    Consob warning on

    "Tio Markets Ltd" (www.tiomarkets.com) - "Terratech Ltd" (www.eufxindex.com) - "GFX FINANCE" Capital Letter GMBH (www.gfxroyal.com) - "Luxor Asset Management Trust" (www.luxoramt.com) - "bstox24" (https://bstox24.com https://client.bstox24.com) - "Crypterium Financial Services" (https://crypteriumfs.com)

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

    The authority availed itself of the new 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 service providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

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

    • "Tio Markets Ltd" (website www.tiomarkets.com);
    • "Terratech Ltd" (website www.eufxindex.com);
    • "GFX FINANCE" Capital Letter GMBH (website www.gfxroyal.com);
    • "Luxor Asset ManagementTrust" (website www.luxoramt.com);
    • "bstox24" (website https://bstox24.com  and its page https://client.bstox24.com);
    • "Crypterium Financial Services" (website https://crypteriumfs.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 290.

    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 the attention of investors to the importance of using the utmost diligence in order to make investment choices in full awareness, adopting common-sense behaviour, which is essential to safeguard their savings: these include prior verification, for sites offering financial services, that the operator through whom the investment is made is authorised and, for financial product offers, that the prospectus has been published.

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

    Consob warning on

    Dinengo Partners Ltd - Jean Pierre Technologies Ltd - KBS Capital Markets Ltd - NorthfintechFX Trading Services Ltd - "Wallwood Broker" - "247 First Invest" - Uptos Ltd - Equalizer Ltd - Inter Media Ltd - Acquantum Ag - "Matrix banco"

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 11 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

    The authority availed itself of the new 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 service providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorisation.

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

    • Dinengo Partners Ltd (website https://marketsdock.com, and its pages client.marketsdock.com and status.marketsdock.com);
    • Jean Pierre Technologies Ltd (website www.jp.finance, and its pages https://trade.jp.finance and https://cashier.jp.finance);
    • KBS Capital Markets Ltd (website www.topcapitalfx.com and its page www.my.topcapitalfx.com);
    • NorthfintechFX Trading Services Ltd (website www.northfintechfx.co and its page www.northfintechfx.trade);
    • “Wallwood Broker" (website https://wallwoodbroker.com);
    • “247 First Invest" (website https://247firstinvest.com);
    • Uptos Ltd (website www.uptos.org);
    • Equalizer Ltd (website www.marketfxc.com);
    • Inter Media Ltd (website www.cfgtrades.com);
    • Acquantum Ag (website www.acquantum.eu);
    • “Matrix banco” (website internet https//matrixbanco.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 279.

    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 on the website www.consob.it there is a section on the homepage “Be aware of fraud!”, providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    * * * * *

    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

    DirectaFx Limited - Gntfin LTD - Maxi Services Ltd - Platiniumfund Ltd - Digital Exchange Limited e Securex Plus Solutions EOOD - ProConsultingInvest - Tfx25 

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

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

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

    • DirectaFx Limited (website www.directafx.com);
    • Gntfin LTD (website www.gnt-fin.com);
    • Maxi Services Ltd (website https://maximarkets.org);
    • Platiniumfund Ltd (website www.platinium-fund.com);
    • Digital Exchange Limited and Securex Plus Solutions EOOD (website www.dgxltd.io);
    • "ProConsultingInvest" (website www.proconsultinginvest.co);
    • "Tfx25" (website www.tfx25.co.uk).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 268.

    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 on the website www.consob.it there is a section on the homepage “Be aware of fraud!”, providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    Consob warning on

    Capoinvest Ltd (www.capoinvestgroup.co.uk) - Terratech Ltd (www.eufxinvest.com) - Level Up Capital Ltd (https://trade100fm.net) - Trade Com Limited (https://globalspotfx.com) - Pure M Global Limited (https://realmarketbroker.com)

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

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

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

    • Capoinvest Ltd (website www.capoinvestgroup.co.uk);
    • Terratech Ltd (website www.eufxinvest.com);
    • Level Up Capital Ltd (website https://trade100fm.net);
    • Trade Com Limited (website https://globalspotfx.com);
    • Pure M Global Limited (websitehttps://realmarketbroker.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 257.

    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 on the website www.consob.it there is a section on the homepage “Be aware of fraud!”, providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    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

    DevTech Holding (swissglobalpro.com) - Profx700 Limited (www.profx700.com) - "Euronovafxasset" (euronovafxasset.com) - Meg Trans Ltd e Roi Stock Limited (www.raxtrade.com) - "Trade Idea" e Netbit Services and Solutions Limited (www.tradeidea.co, https://elitetrading.co, secure.elitetrading.co, trading.elitetrading.co) 

     

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 8 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

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

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

    • DevTech Holding (website swissglobalpro.com);
    • Profx700 Limited (website www.profx700.com);
    • "Euronovafxasset" (websiteeuronovafxasset.com);
    • Meg Trans Ltd and Roi Stock Limited (website www.raxtrade.com);
    • "Trade Idea" and Netbit Services and Solutions Limited (websiteswww.tradeidea.co, https://elitetrading.co, secure.elitetrading.co and trading.elitetrading.co).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 247.

    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 on the website www.consob.it there is a section on the homepage "Be aware of fraud!", providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    Report by the AMF:

    The French supervisory authority, AMF, warns investors that in the last three months it has received a large number of reports from investors reporting the often aggressive practices of multi-level marketing companies (MLMs) offering forex trading or crypto-activity training through a pyramid recruitment and remuneration system.

    The period of blockade implemented due to the spread of Covid-19 has favoured the development of the network of these platforms that leverage the feeling of urgency and the idea of a unique opportunity not to be missed. The AMF has received reports of proposed schemes that consist of selling training packages for trading in the forex market or in crypto-activities as bitcoins. Packages worth several hundred euros, sometimes including a monthly subscription, and include the recruitment of others.

    The proposals are conveyed by messaging and social media apps, often through interesting videos, promising "good deals", "easy money", "passive income" and have been used to attract the attention of many internet users stuck at home, especially students. The slogans include "wealth is now! Create your global business" or "become a professional FX trader", "block profitably" or "copy, paste, cash in".

    The French supervisory authorities, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) and the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution (ACPR) have updated the list of websites offering investments in derivatives and crypto-activity without authorisation.

    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.

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

    • Equalizer Ltd (websites www.capitalgmafx.com, https://secure.capitalgmafx.comhttps://trade.capitalgmafx.com, www.marketscfds.comhttps://secsecure.marketscfds.com, https://trading.marketscfds.com, https://ztrade24.comhttps://secure.ztrade24.com, https://trade.ztrade24.com);

    • RL Ltd (website www.royaltd24.net);
    • Platiniumfund Ltd (website www.platiniumfund.com);
    • "Findealadvisers" (website www.findealadvisers.com);
    • FSM Smart Ltd (website it.fsmsmart.net);
    • "Rmt500" (website www.rmt500.net).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 239.

    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 entitled "Be aware of fraud!", which provides useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    The same Cypriot supervisory authority also reports that, with effect from the same date of 1 June 2020, it has ordered the total suspension of the authorisation to provide investment services issued to the Cypriot company Hoch Capital Ltd (https://www.cysec.gov.cy/CMSPages/GetFile.aspx?guid=ddc8f8e1-7660-4d8e-b3f2-902cf2109a25), already the subject of a Consob precautionary measure prohibiting the exercise of activities in Italy and still in force (see Resolution no. 21171 of 5 December 2019).

    It should be noted that the following websites can be traced back to these Cypriot companies:

    • F1Markets Ltd: www.f1markets.com; www.StrattonMarkets.com; www.24CM.com; www.investous.com/eu; www.europrime.com/eu.
    • Magnum FX (Cyprus) Ltd: magnumfx.eu; ETfinance.eu.
    • Hoch Capital Ltd: www.hochcapital.com; www.itrader.com; www.tradeATF.com.

    CONSOB invites investors to carefully consult the lists of investment firms actually authorised to operate in Italy (http://www.consob.it/web/area-pubblica/imprese-di-investimento1) as well as the investor protection warnings (http://www.consob.it/web/area-pubblica/avvisi-ai-risparmiatori) and in any event to be careful before making investment decisions.

    Consob warning on

    CobraCFD Ltd (www.cobra-cfd.biz) - White Rock Partners Ltd (https://mycapital.io) - Vaneda Partners Ltd e Zeus Partnership OÜ (www.dax100fx.com) - Kleinman Enterprise Ltd (https://thecapitalstocks.com) - Global Top Marketing Ltd e Gps Marketing Ltd (https://profit-trade.net) - UMO Finance Ltd (www.umo-finance.com) - Alberto Simoni (www.umoperte.dazeroamarketer.com) 

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 7 new websites: 5 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 bid is made.

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

    • CobraCFD Ltd (website www.cobra-cfd.biz);
    • White Rock Partners Ltd (website https://mycapital.io);
    • Vaneda Partners Ltd and Zeus Partnership OÜ (website www.dax100fx.com);
    • Kleinman Enterprise Ltd  (website https://thecapitalstocks.com);
    • Global Top Marketing Ltd and Gps Marketing Ltd (website https://profit-trade.net).
    • UMO Finance Ltd (website www.umo-finance.com);
    • Alberto Simoni (website www.umoperte.dazeroamarketer.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 218.

    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 entitled "Be aware of fraud!", which provides useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    The Commission has also prohibited:

    • pursuant to Article 99, paragraph 1, letter d) of the Consolidated Law on Finance, the bid to the public resident in Italy concerning investments of a financial nature made by the company UMO Finance Ltd in the absence of the required authorizations also through the website www.umo-finance.com(Resolution no. 21389 of 27 May 2020);
    • pursuant to Article 101, paragraph 4, letter c), of the Consolidated Law on Finance, the advertising activity carried out by Mr. Alberto Simoni through the website www.umoperte.dazeroamarketer.com, on the public bid promoted by UMO Finance Ltd (Resolution no. 21388 of 27 May 2020).

    The Commission had already suspended the above activities for 90 days, with Resolutions nos. 21279 and 21280 26 November 2020 (see "Consob Informa" no. 8/2020).

    * * *

    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: 

    - CobraCFD Ltd through the website www.cobra-cfd.biz (resolution no. 21386 of 27 May 2020);

    - White Rock Partners Ltd through the website https://mycapital.io (resolution no. 21384 of 27 May 2020);

    - Vaneda Partners LTD and Zeus Partnership OÜ through the website www.dax100fx.com (resolution no. 21387 of May 2020);

    - Kleinman Enterprise Ltd through the website https://thecapitalstocks.com (resolution no. 21385 of 27 May 2020);

These subterfuges are done in order to access brokerage accounts and personal data with a view to appropriating the financial resources of investors. A feature of some of these scams is the use of websites and email addresses similar to those used by US government agencies.

    Consob warning on

    "CruxInv" (https://cruxinv.com, https://client.crux24.com) - Digital Exchange Limited e Securex Plus Solutions Eood (www.dgxltd.com) - Maginito Services Ltd (www.profitsystemfx.com) - Kleinman Enterprise Ltd e Kleinman Services Ou (https://wisefunds.co) - FxLinked Ltd, FxLinked (Sv) Ltd, FxLinked (Europa) Ltd e FxLinked (Seychelles) (www.fxlinked.com, www.forexlinked.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:

    • "CruxInv" (websites https://cruxinv.com and https://client.crux24.com);
    • Digital Exchange Limited and Securex Plus Solutions Eood (website www.dgxltd.com);
    • Maginito Services Ltd (website www.profitsystemfx.com);
    • Kleinman Enterprise Ltd and Kleinman Services Ou (website https://wisefunds.co);
    • FxLinked Ltd, FxLinked (Sv) Ltd, FxLinked (Europa) Ltd and FxLinked (Seychelles) (websites www.fxlinked.com and www.forexlinked.com).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 211.

    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.

    Consob warning on

    Uptos Ltd (www.uptos.com) - Swissgems Ltd e Media Solutions Ltd (www.marketscfd.net) - Zurichbanc Ltd (www.zurichbanc.co) - Platinumpro Investment Ltd (https://platinumproinvestment.com) - Bitcoin-Trader (https://bitcointrader.software)   

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 5 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:

    • Uptos Ltd (website www.uptos.com);
    • Swissgems Ltd and Media Solutions Ltd (website www.marketscfd.net);
    • Zurichbanc Ltd (website www.zurichbanc.co);
    • Platinumpro Investment Ltd (website https://platinumproinvestment.com);
    • Bitcoin-Trader (website https://bitcointrader.software).

    The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 204.

    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 entitled "Be aware of fraud!", which provides useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    ***

    Moreover, Consob warns investors, with a special notice, about the practice adopted by abusive financial operators who improperly use the name and image of celebrities to promise easy earnings and induce investors to subscribe to investment proposals.

    In particular, Consob warns that parties not authorised to provide investment services, addressing savers mainly through websites and social media, improperly associate untruthful statements, interviews or images of public figures with services they unlawfully offer or provide. The purpose of this practice is to promote investment services to investors using the images of people well-known in various sectors without their knowledge.

    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:
