    Lexis Solution Ltd e Ventera Group (https://venteragroup.com, page https://clientzone.venteragroup.com) - Donnybrook Consulting Ltd (www.optimarket.cc) - Scintilla Enterprise Ltd (https://solidstocks.co, page https://client.solidstocks.co) 

    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:

    - Lexis Solution Ltd e Ventera Group" (website https://venteragroup.com and its page https://clientzone.venteragroup.com);

    - Donnybrook Consulting Ltd (website www.optimarket.cc);

    - Scintilla Enterprise Ltd (webite https://solidstocks.co and its page https://client.solidstocks.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 485.

    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 you that on the website www.consob.it there is a section on the homepage, "Watch for Scams!", providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    The French supervisory authority, AMF - Autorité des marchés financiers – has published a notice to savers inviting them not to take part in investment offers relating to nursing homes for elderly in Spain and Portugal, made by telephone, e-mail and abusive websites with proposals for false lease contracts by subjects who claim to be linked to financial institutions or large groups in the health sector. These abusive proposals are similar to others - for airport parking - already subject to the attention of the AMF in June 2020. The AMF invites retail investors not to subscribe, without prior verification of the necessary guarantees or authorisations, investment offers containing false investment prospects or guaranteed returns.

    The Belgian Supervisory Authority (FSMA) once again warns savers against unauthorised companies offering investment services in wine, champagne and other wine products. In order to avoid fraud, the FSMA urges savers to exercise the utmost caution and advises them to be careful before making any investments. To this end, it offers some advice:

    be wary of promises of exaggerated earnings. Always verify the identity of the company that is contacting you (company identity, country of origin, etc.);

    if a company cannot be clearly identified, it should not be considered reliable; check also when the company's website was created: if the company's website is relatively new, this could be a further sign of investment fraud;

    be careful if you are asked to deposit money in bank accounts in countries other than the one where the company claims to be registered or with your country where it claims to have its registered office;

    be careful even if you are asked to deposit money in accounts whose beneficiary is a person other than the company itself. In any case, if the contact person proves to be particularly insistent, be wary, it could be fraud.

    Consob has ordered the blackout of 5 new websites that abusively offer financial services illegally.

    The Authority availed itself of the powers deriving from the "Growth Decree" (Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, Article no. 36, paragraph 2-terdecies), relating to the blackout of the sites of abusive financial intermediaries, as well as of the power introduced by the Law no. 8 of 28 February 2020 (Article no. 4, paragraph 3-bis), with reference to the blackout of the site through which the abusive offer is carried out.

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

    • FCS Technology Ltd (website https://stockmarketinvestpro.com and related page https://client.stockmarketinvestpro.com);
    • NEWWAY Pltd (website https://luxurycapitals.com and related pages https://client.luxurycapitals.com and webtrader.luxurycapital.com);
    • Eu Trade Ltd (website https://eu-trade4u.com and related page https://client.eu-trade4u.com as well as websites https://reserve4u.co and related page https://client.reserve4u.co);
    • BIM LLC - Nata Trade Limited (website www.natatrade.com).

    The number of websites 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 479.

    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 behaviors, 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 authorized, 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, "Watch for Scams!", providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    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:

    - Kiplar Ltd (website https://kiplar.com);

    - AcadianAmLtd (website www.aca-asset.com and its page https://accounts.aca-asset.com);

    - UniCap Trade Ltd and Tradobit (website www.tradobit.com);

    - Revotrade Ltd (websitewww.revotrade.com and its page https://my.revotrade.com);

    - Gb Trade Fx (website https://gbtradefx.co.uk and its page https://gbtradefx24.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 467.

    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 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 warning on

    Tremisa Ltd (https://abbinvest.com) - Tradixa Ltd (www.tradixa.net) - E-Planet Trade (https://eplanetrade.com, page https://trade.eplanetrade.com) - Beradora Ltd (https://timarkets.com, page https://accounts.timarkets.com) - Bolton Holding Limited and Bolton First Credit Limited (www.bfclcoin.com) - Niwix Limited (www.niwix.org) - QubitTech Corporation (www.qubittech.dev) 

    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 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:

    • Tremisa Ltd (website https://abbinvest.com);
    • Tradixa Ltd (website www.tradixa.net);
    • E-Planet Trade (website https://eplanetrade.com and page https://trade.eplanetrade.com);
    • Beradora Ltd (website https://timarkets.com and page https://accounts.timarkets.com);
    • Bolton Holding Limited and Bolton First Credit Limited (website www.bfclcoin.com);
    • Niwix Limited (website www.niwix.org).

    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 452.

    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 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 as a precautionary measure, pursuant to article 99, paragraph 1, letter b) of Legislative Decree no. 58/1998 (Consolidated Law on Finance), the offer to the public of financial products promoted by Bolton Holding Limited and Bolton First Credit Limited, also through the website www.bfclcoin.com, in violation of article94-bis of the Consolidated Law on Finance (resolution no. 21854 of 19 May 2021);
    • suspended as a precautionary measure, pursuant to article 99, paragraph 1, letter b) of the Consolidated Law on Finance, the offer to the public of financial products promoted by Niwix Limited, also through the website www.niwix.org, in violation of article94-bis of the Consolidated Law on Finance (resolution no. 21853 of 19 May 2021);
    • prohibited, pursuant to Article 99, paragraph 1, letter c) of the Consolidated Law on Finance, the offer to the public resident in Italy of investments of a financial nature promoted by QubitTech Corporation through the websitewww.qubittech.dev (resolution no. 21859 of 19 May 2021). The activity promoted by QuibitTech Corporation had already been suspended by resolution no. 21737 of 25 February 2021 (see “Consob Informa” no. 8/2021).

    Reported by the CNMV:

    The Authorité des Marchés Financiers - AMF – Quebec has published on its website the following notice to savers, which is summarised here:

    "Initial coin offerings are very risky and highly volatile investments that exist in an environment that makes them susceptible to manipulation and fraud.

    Coins are created using easily accessible technology and are marketed on decentralised exchanges, without any intervention or authorisation from third parties. A quick internet search is enough to find sites that explain how to create coins and how to make them available in just a few minutes for blockchain trading. This situation is encouraging the proliferation of coins on the Internet whose promoters attract investors by promising them huge returns on investment projects. Many of these coins are available from decentralised platforms, which operate without any human intervention.

    AMF and its IT surveillance team are making vigorous efforts to detect fraudulent projects at an early stage. However, the enormous size of the internet and the use of social networks, including Instant Messaging Apps that allow the creation of private chat groups, often make it impossible for regulators to intervene in advance.

    The AMF also recalls that entities that intend to raise capital through IT assets must comply with the regulatory requirements applicable to securities and derivatives. Failure to do so will result in criminal prosecution or penalties.

    The AMF therefore asks those who are planning an ICO to inquire about their legal obligations and to ensure that they operate in compliance with applicable regulations.

    The AMF also reminds people and companies that operate platforms that exchange cryptographic assets that are securities or derivatives, which are also subject to current regulations on securities and derivatives.

    Again, failure to comply with these regulations could lead to legal proceedings and sanctions.

    Finally, AMF urges the public, in particular young people, many of whom currently seem attracted to projects that promise large and rapid profits, to proceed with extreme caution, especially when considering cryptocurrencies. Unfortunately, such projects often turn out to be scams or, at best, excessively risky investments."

    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 441.

    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 “Watch for scams!”, providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    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:

    - Geverestfx (website https://geverestfx.com and its page accounts.geverestfx.com);

    - Chamberfx (website www.chamberfx.com);

    - Widdershins Group Ltd (website www.finlay.capital and its pages finlay.cc webtrader.finlay.cc);

    - Goldmanbanc, Inc. (website https://goldmans.cc);

    - Investigram Ltd (website https://investigrams.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 436.

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

    Consob warning on

    Consob warning of 28 April 2021: Consob and Bank of Italy warn against risks inherent in crypto-assets

    Consob and the Bank of Italy call the attention of the community, and in particular of small savers, to the high risks associated with operations in crypto-assets which can determine the total loss of the sums which have been invested.

    The warning notice, subsequent to other initiatives of this kind already taken in the past[1], has been made appropriate by the imminent definition of a unitary regulatory framework in the European context.

    In recent times, the three European supervisory authorities, Eba, Esma and Eiopa, making reference to their warning of 2018, have reiterated the highly risky and speculative nature of crypto-assets, warning consumers to pay attention to the high risks associated with their purchase and/or possession[2].

    For some time now, at European and international level, a growing interest on the market of crypto-assets, such as Bitcoin for example, has been registered.

    Due to the absence of a reference regulatory framework, operations in crypto-assets entail various kinds of risks, including: the lack of information on methods for the determination of the prices; the volatility of the prices; the complexity of the underlying technologies; the absence of legal and contractual protections, information obligations on the part of operators and specific forms of supervision on these operators, as well as of rules to safeguard the invested capital. The risk of losses due to malfunctions, hacking attacks or loss of ID access to electronic wallets is also noted.

    These risks now take on greater significance with reference to the spread of offers which are carried out through digital channels, facilitating the purchase of crypto-assets by a very wide range of subjects.

    The European Commission recently formulated a regulatory proposal to manage the issuance, the offer to the public, the provision of services and the fight against market abuse in relation to the different types of crypto-assets. The proposal has the purpose of defining a reliable legal framework for these instruments as well as ensuring the integrity of the market and adequate levels of protection for consumers and savers. The process for the approval of the regulatory proposal is still underway.

    At the moment, therefore, the purchase of crypto-assets is not subject to the rules on the transparency of banking products and investment services and continues to lack specific forms of protection; in particular, these activities are not subject to any form of supervision or control by the supervisory Authorities.

    Consequently, the adherence itself to offers of financial products related to crypto-assets, such as the so-called digital token is a highly risky investment, all the more so if, as often found, these offers are made by operators which are abusive, unauthorized, unregulated and unsupervised by any Authority.

    Consob warning on

    "Italiano Invest" (www.italianoinvest.net, pagina secure.italianoinvest.net) - EZ2GO Ltd (www.capitalfx.co, pagina client.capital.co) - Ozava Partners Ltd (https://goldmanbanc.com) - "Pro Star" (www.ictrades.co) - "New Traders Holdings" (www.newtradersholdings-fx.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:

    • “Italiano Invest” (website www.italianoinvest.net and its page secure.italianoinvest.net);
    • EZ2GO Ltd (website www.capitalfx.co and its page client.capital.co);
    • Ozava Partners Ltd (website https://goldmanbanc.com);
    • Pro Star (website www.ictrades.co);
    • New Traders Holdings (website www.newtradersholdings-fx.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 431.

    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 “Watch for scams!”, providing useful information to warn investors against financially abusive initiatives.

    Consob warning on

    Kbs Capital Markets Ltd (www.swisspremiumfx.com, page https://my.swisspremiumfx.com) - Terratech Ltd (www.bimfx24.co, www.eurtrade24.com) - Lollygag Partners Ltd (https://finocapital.io) - Widdershins Group Ltd (https://24fintime.io) 

    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:

    - Kbs Capital Markets Ltd (website www.swisspremiumfx.com and its page https://my.swisspremiumfx.com);

    - Terratech Ltd (websites www.bimfx24.co and www.eurtrade24.com);

    - Lollygag Partners Ltd (website https://finocapital.io);

    - Widdershins Group Ltd (website https://24fintime.io)

    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 410.

    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 “Watch for scams!”, 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:

    The Belgian supervisory authority, the FSMA, has recently received information about the fact that many savers have been contacted by e-mail or telephone by people who claim to be members of the FSMA's staff and to be able to help people who were previously victims of fraud to recover the losses they have suffered. The savers contacted by these parties also report having received contractual documents bearing the logo and name of the FSMA. To this end, fraudsters have used email addresses ending with “@fsmabelgium.com”. Theemails received from these addresses do not come from the FSMA. Whatever the scenario, it is identity theft. The FSMA then forwarded this information to the judicial authority.

    Esma Risk Report of 17 March 2021 - High risks for savers in non-regulated crypto assets

    Esma, the European securities markets regulator, published its first 2021 report on Trends, Risks and Vulnerabilities (Trv) on 17 March, in which the main risks for financial stability and investors are reviewed also with reference to Covid-19 pandemic and to its impact in the second half of 2020 on the financial markets. In its report, Esma analyzes the main uncertainties affecting the markets and, in addition, some particularly significant features of the current framework: the growth of risk credit linked to excessive growth of public and corporate debt, the investments in non-regulated crypto-assets and the related risks.

    According to Esma, the rebound in the equity markets and the high debt level seem to be in contrast with the weakness of economic fundamentals; the risk of an unexpected correction of the financial markets cannot therefore be averted in the event of a risk assessment reversal in the evaluations made by the investors. In coordination with the other European supervisory authorities (Eba and Eiopa), Esma is also warning savers about the risks associated with transactions in crypto-assets, including virtual currencies such as Bitcoin, given their speculative nature. The three authorities, following the Warning notice to consumers already issued in February 2018, once again warn savers from operating in risky virtual assets, due to the risk of losing the invested capital (Warning of 17 March 2021). Finally, Esma specifies that a discipline for the protection of savers investing in crypto-assets is not currently available because the project of a European regulation on crypto-asset markets, launched by the European Commission in September 2020, is ongoing and must be still approved.

    Kbs Capital Markets Ltd (https://royaltradefx.com, pagina https://my.royaltradefx.com) - Donnybrook Consulting Ltd (www.eurofx.trade) - Investigram Ltd (www.investigram.com) - Fcs Technology Ltd (https://stockmarketinvest.pro, page https://client.stockmarketinvest.pro) 

    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:

    - Kbs Capital Markets Ltd (websitehttps://royaltradefx.com and its page https://my.royaltradefx.com);

    - Donnybrook Consulting Ltd (website www.eurofx.trade);

    - Investigram Ltd (website www.investigram.com);

    Fcs Technology Ltd (website https://stockmarketinvest.pro and its page https://client.stockmarketinvest.pro);

    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 400.

    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 warning on

    Public warning pursuant to the combined provisions of Article no. 30, paragraph 2, letter c, of Regulation (EU) no. 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 relating to market abuse and Article no. 187-ter.1, paragraph 8, of the Legislative Decree no. 58 of 24 February 1998 (Resolution no. 21652 of 18 December 2020)

    The Commission announced that Mr. Guido Cicognani, in his capacity as Vice President and CEO of Bio On Spa - whose securities at the time of the events were traded in the AIM segment of the Italian Stock Exchange - in violation of Article no. 19 of Regulation (EU) 596/2014 (Market Abuse Regulation - "Mar") of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on market abuse, failed to notify Consob and Bio On Spa itself the sale transactions, put in place on 22 October 2019, of 5,000 Bio On shares (at a weighted average price of 10.42 Euros) for a total countervalue of 52,100 Euros.

    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.

    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.
