    Consob warning on

    Nab Europe Limited (www.nabconsulting.eu) - Swiss Management Corporation Ltd (https://fx24.one) - "Expertsystemsfx" (client.expertsystemsfx.com) - "FXOptexGroups" e "FxOptexGroup" (https://fxoptexgroups.com, page https://client.fxoptexgroups.com) - "Italiano Invest2 (www.italianoinvest.com) - QubitTech Corporation (www.qubittech.dev)

    Consob has ordered the blackout of 6 new websites that abusively offer financial services/financial products: 5 abusive financial intermediation sites and 1 site 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

    - Nab Europe Limited (website www.nabconsulting.eu);

    - Swiss Management Corporation Ltd (website https://fx24.one);

    -"Expertsystemsfx" (website client.expertsystemsfx.com);

    -"FXOptexGroups" and "FxOptexGroup" (website https://fxoptexgroups.com and its page https://client.fxoptexgroups.com);

    -"Italiano Invest" (website www.italianoinvest.com);

    -QubitTech Corporation (website www.qubittech.dev).

    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 391.

    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 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 also suspended, for a period of 90 days, pursuant to article 99, paragraph 1, letter b) of Legislative Decree no. 58/1998 (Consolidated Law on Finance), the offering to the public resident in Italy involving investments of a financial nature promoted by QubitTech Corporation through the website www.qubittech.dev (resolution no. 21737 of 25 February 2021).

    Consob warning on

    Empirecfd Limited (www.empirecfd.com, page https://crm.empirecfd.com) - Empire Capital LLC (https://27proquote.com) - Kiqiwk Holdings Intl Limited (www.solutionsmarkets.io) - HB Enterprises OU and Fina Holding Incorporated (www.forexone.co, page https://client.forexone.co)

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 4 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 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 authorization.

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

    - Empirecfd Limited (website www.empirecfd.com - and its page https://crm.empirecfd.com);

    - Empire Capital LLC (website https://27proquote.com);

    - Kiqiwk Holdings Intl Limited (website www.solutionsmarkets.io);

    - HB Enterprises OU and Fina Holding Incorporated (website www.forexone.co and its page https://client.forexone.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 385.

    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.

    Esma: risks to retail investors of social media-driven share trading

    ESMA, the EU’s securities markets regulator, has warned savers with a statement that highlights the risks of the online trading decisions carried out as consequence of exchanges of views and informal recommendations shared on the web and the following involvement in trading strategies deliberately made public through social networks (www.esma.europa.eu/press-news/esma-news/esma-highlights-risks-retail-investors-social-media-driven-share-trading). The issuance of the ESMA statement is part of the European authority's strategy for the protection of savers and retail investors; it is also linked to recent experiences on US markets, characterized by high price volatility, caused by the sharing of trading information through social media. Without prejudice to the different regulation of both the markets, this dynamic might also occur within the EU financial framework.

    ESMA, which will continue in its monitoring of the markets for the protection of investors and to favour the integrity of the markets themselves, suggests in any case that operators make use, in their trading decisions, of reliable information, to avoid or, at least, reduce both the risk of both heavy losses due to price volatility and of market abuse.

    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 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 authorization.

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

    • SpTrade24 Ltd (website www.sptrade24.com);
    • Directafx Ltd Group and Directafx Limited (website www.directafxs.com);
    • "Gb Trade Fx" (website https://gbtradefx.com);
    • "Globalcfd Ltd" and "D&D Venture Project Ltd" (website www.globalcfd.co);
    • "MarketsCFDs" (website https://client.marketcfx.com);
    • "Itradersfx Ltd" (website www.itradersfx.com);
    • Plus One Ltd (website www.marketcfd.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 381.

    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 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 Autorité des Marchés Financiers – (AMF - Quebec) warns savers about the very high risks of any type of speculation on the stock market, in particular warns against investment incentives on some internet and social media forums.

    In recent months, and especially since the beginning of 2021, some discussion forums and social media platforms have urged investments in shares of some companies whose values have recently increased.

    Speculators encourage inexperienced investors to consider the effects on the values of such shares as an indication of better financial gains or performance and encourage them to invest in such companies.

    In fact, the stock market values of some companies have recently skyrocketed, such increases in value can be short-lived and decrease as quickly as they have increased.

    The Belgian supervisory authority, the FSMA, also reports that it has recently received numerous complaints from consumers who have been contacted by companies that illegally use the names of some authorised banking intermediaries to offer savings plans that offer extremely high returns. Behind these tempting offers, however, are scammers.

    The approach is to contact the victims by phone or e-mail. Savings plans are proposed, with the promise of higher returns than market returns and very often with a guarantee of capital. In the end, the victims are unable to recover the money.

    Consob warning on

    Advertising web initiatives which generically recommend fiticious investments and could be functional to the acquisition of sums of money or personal data

    In the context of its supervisory activity, Consob detected an increase in advertising campaigns relating to alleged investments, implemented through banners, advertisements, pop-ups and/or similar advertising tools variously displayed on websites and social networks or, sometimes, through email or telephone messages, by the means of which it is generically foreshadowed, also through the undue matching between advertised investment and well-known personalities, the possibility of gaining significant (often unlikely) financial returns in exchange of the proposed purchase of shares of well-known international technological and commercial companies, of renowned football clubs and/or crypto-currencies.

    In the context of these advertising campaigns, users are requested to ask for information about the advertised investment by the filling out of a form with their personal details and their telephone and /or email numbers to be called back. Consob therefore warns the savers about the risks associated with such advertising initiatives which generally foreshadow fictitious investments which could, in reality, be functional to the acquisition of sums of money or personal data.

    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 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 authorization.

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

    • "RevolutionFx" (websites https://revolution-fx.io and https://revolution-fx.cc);
    • "Dma Direct Ab" (website https://dmadirectab.com  and its page https://client.dmadirectab.com);
    • "Capitalcom Investment"  (website www.capitalcominvestment.com);
    • Broker Major Ltd (website www.brokermajor24.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 368.

    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 one's savings: these include, for websites that offer financial services, checking in advance that the operator with whom you are investing is authorised, and, for offers of financial products, that a 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.

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 3 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 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 authorization.

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

    "360 Trading Networks Sdn Bhd" (website www.thebestrader.com);

    "Team North Partners Ltd" and "Colespite Partners Ltd" (website https://splittrades.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 363.

    Consob warning on

    Octaviotrade (https://octaviotrade.com) - Konstos Markets Ltd (www.stocklux.co) - Salvax Limited (www.fxsuit.eu) - LiborTC Ltd (https://libortc.com and https://client.libortc.com) - Tradixa Ltd e All Media Eood (www.tradixas.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 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 authorization.

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

    - "Octaviotrade" (website https://octaviotrade.com);

    - Konstos Markets Ltd (website www.stocklux.co);

    - Salvax Limited (website www.fxsuit.eu);

    - "LiborTC Ltd" (website https://libortc.com and its page https://client.libortc.com);

    - Tradixa Ltd and All Media Eood (website www.tradixas.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 354.

    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:

    - Octaviotrade through the websitehttps://octviotrade.com (resolution no. 21654 of 18 December 2020);

    - Konstos Markets Ltd through the websitewww.stocklux.co (resolution no. 21656 of 18 December 2020);

    - LiborTC Ltd through the websitehttps://libortc.com and its page https://client.libortc.com (resolution no. 21653 of 18 December 2020);

    Consob warning on

    Investoomatic Limited (www.investoomatic.com) - Kiqiwk Holdings Intl Limited (www.solutionsmarkets.co) - ADV-Investment (www.adv-investment.com, www2.adv-investment.com) 

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 4 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 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 authorization.

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

    - Investoomatic Limited (website www.investoomatic.com);

    - Kiqiwk Holdings Intl Limited (website www.solutionsmarkets.co);

    - "ADV-Investment" (websites www.adv-investment.com and www2.adv-investment.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 349.

    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:

    Reporting by the Belgian supervisory authority

    The Financial Services and Markets Authority - FSMA, warns investors from fraudulent investment offers implemented through social networks. The unauthorised online trading platforms are currently making extensive use of this technique. Fraudsters hack the accounts and use them to promote investment or credit offers. A post which boasts an investment offering that provides an exceptional return is generally published on the account of a friend. By clicking on that post, personal data is captured and fraudsters usually call very quickly so as to submit their fraudulent offer.

    Reporting by the Luxembourg supervisory authority

    The Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier - CSSF, warns investors that a person presenting himself under the name of Andrey Doronin illegally pretends to be a CSSF employee exhibiting falsified documentation in order to steal confidential data of people contacted for illegal purposes.

    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);

    - "Mibtrades" through the website www.mibtrades.com (resolution no. 21591 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:

    Consob warning on

    Evergo Ltd (www.tradesrun.com, pagina client.trading-dashboard.co) - FS International LTD (www.fxglobe.international) - Giuseppe Eros Lana (www.berkshiresystem.com) - Pure M Global Limited (www.ascend-market.com) - 4FXLUXUS Pvt Ltd e Global Pegasus LTD (https://4fxluxus.com)   

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 5 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:

    • Evergo Ltd (website www.tradesrun.com and its page client.trading-dashboard.co);
    • FS International LTD  (website www.fxglobe.international);
    • Giuseppe Eros Lana  (website www.berkshiresystem.com);
    • Pure M Global Limited (website www.ascend-market.com);
    • 4FXLUXUS Pvt Ltd and Global Pegasus LTD (website https://4fxluxus.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 323.

    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

    Broker Major Ltd (www.brokermajor.com) - Premium Solutions Ltd (https://the-premium-brokers.net / https://trader.secure.the-premium-brokers.net) - Swissgems Ltd e Media Solutions Ltd (www.cfdnets.com / url marketscfd.net) - "Royaltyfinance" (www.royaltyfinance.io) - Esos International Ltd e Kakedy International S.R.O (www.ainvestments.com / www.ainvestments.biz)

    Consob has ordered the black-out of 6 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:

    • Broker Major Ltd (website www.brokermajor.com);
    • Premium Solutions Ltd (website https://the-premium-brokers.net and its page https://trader.secure.the-premium-brokers.net);
    • Swissgems Ltd and Media Solutions Ltd (website www.cfdnets.com and url marketscfd.net);
    • “Royaltyfinance” (website www.royaltyfinance.io);
    • Esos International Ltd and Kakedy International S.R.O (websites www.ainvestments.com and www.ainvestments.biz).

    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 306.

    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

    "richemontson" (https://richemontson.cc) - Globalix Ltd (www.globalixs.com) - Astrica Ltd (www.market4fx.com) - "Tradixa Ltd" (www.tradi-xa.com) - "MyCapital" (https://mycapitalit.cc)

    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:

    • "richemontson" (website https://richemontson.cc);
    • Globalix Ltd (website www.globalixs.com);
    • Astrica Ltd (website www.market4fx.com);
    • "Tradixa Ltd" (website www.tradi-xa.com);
    • "MyCapital" (websitehttps://mycapitalit.cc).

    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 295.

    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.

    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 284.

    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.
