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.
