    Consob warning on

    Geverestfx (https://geverestfx.com, pagina accounts.geverestfx.com) - Chamberfx (www.chamberfx.com) - Widdershins Group Ltd (www.finlay.capital, pagine finlay.cc webtrader.finlay.cc) - Goldmanbanc, Inc. (https://goldmans.cc) - Investigram Ltd (https://investigrams.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:

    - 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.

    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

    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.

    Trade Com Limited - Konstos Markets Ltd - Vita Impex Ltd - Up Invest Finance 

    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:

    - Trade Com Limited (website https://spotfinex.com and its page https://accounts.spotfinex.com);

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

    - Vita Impex Ltd (websites https://vitafx.com and https://pluton500.com);

    - "Up Invest Finance" (website https://upinvestfin.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 421.

    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

    Salvax Limited (www.fxsuit.it, www.fxsuit.net) - NewTraders Holdings Ltd (https://eu-markets.co, page https://client.eu-markets.co) - Triton Partnership Ltd (https://lcoinmarket.com, page https://client.lcoinmarket.com) - Evolution Markets LTD (http://marketseco.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:

    • Salvax Limited (websites www.fxsuit.it and www.fxsuit.net);
    • NewTraders Holdings Ltd (website https://eu-markets.co and its page https://client.eu-markets.co);
    • Triton Partnership Ltd (website https://lcoinmarket.com and its page https://client.lcoinmarket.com);
    • Evolution Markets LTD (website http://marketseco.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 405.

    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.

    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.

    - 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.

    Consob warning on

    "FSCS.UK Limited" (https://fscs.uk) - NewTraders Holding Ltd (www.toltechfx.co) - Zurich Invests Ltd e ZH Companies BNK Ltd (www.zurichinvests.com) - "TradeFCX" e "Fxstarpro" (https://tradefcx.com) - "Fxstarpro"/Fxstarpro LTD (https://fxstarpro.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:

    • "FSCS.UK Limited" (website https://fscs.uk);
    • NewTraders Holding Ltd (website www.toltechfx.co);
    • Zurich Invests Ltd e ZH Companies BNK Ltd  (website www.zurichinvests.com);
    • "TradeFCX" and "Fxstarpro" (website https://tradefcx.com);
    • "Fxstarpro"/Fxstarpro  LTD (website https://fxstarpro.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 396.

    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.

    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.

    Reporting by the Quebec Supervisory Authority:

    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.

    RevolutionFx" (https://revolution-fx.io, https://revolution-fx.cc) - "Dma Direct Ab" (https://dmadirectab.com, pagina https://client.dmadirectab.com) - "Capitalcom Investment" (www.capitalcominvestment.com) - Broker Major Ltd (www.brokermajor24.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:

    • "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 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 on market abuse and Article No 187-ter.1, paragraph 8, of the Legislative Decree of 24 February 1998, No 58 - Consob Resolution No 21651 of 18 December 2020 [only Italian version]

    It is made public that Mr. Marco Astorri, as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer as well as the controlling entity of Bio On S.p.A. - 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) No 596/2014 ("MAR") of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on market abuse, failed to notify Consob and the same Bio On S.p.A. the sales operations of no. 8750 shares issued by the same, for an equivalent value of 91.175 Euros, carried out on 22 October 2019.

    Consob warning on

    Axedo (www.axedo.co) - Fxfinancepro e Globalinvestfx (https://fxfinancepro.com, page https://client.fxfinancepro.com) - Think Market 247 Ltd (www.thinkmarket247.com, page https://trade.thinkmarket247.com) - Donnybrook Consulting Ltd (https://energy-markets.io, https://energy-markets.cc, page webtrader.energy-markets.cc) - Universe Citizen Limited (www.fxcitizen.com)

    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:

    • “Axedo” (websitewww.axedo.co);
    • “Fxfinancepro” and “Globalinvestfx” (website https://fxfinancepro.com and its page https://client.fxfinancepro.com);
    • Think Market 247 Ltd (website www.thinkmarket247.com and its page https://trade.thinkmarket247.com);
    • Donnybrook Consulting Ltd (websites https://energy-markets.io, https://energy-markets.cc and its page webtrader.energy-markets.cc);
    • Universe Citizen Limited (website www.fxcitizen.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 360.

    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 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

    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.

    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.
