CySEC Updates: warnings regarding unregulated FX, CFD and crypto brokerages.
The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) on Thurday published a set of warnings regarding unregulated FX, CFD and crypto brokerages.
The warnings target the following entities:
CySEC informs investors that the above-mentioned websites do not belong to an entity which has been granted an authorization for the provision of investment services and/or the performance of investment activities, as provided for in Article 5 of Law 87 (I)/2017. The regulator advises investors to consult its website (www.cysec.gov.cy), before conducting business with investment firms, in order to ascertain the entities which are licensed to provide investment services and/or investment activities.
Let‘s note that CySEC has recently warned against an impostor website. The fake website is hosted in India is set up as an imposter of CySEC’s main site.
The imposter website, cysecgov.com, is a scam which for whatever reason is only showing CySEC news bulletins through to October 2020.
This is not the first time that CySEC has had to deal with imposters or impersonators. Last year that individuals claiming to be CySEC officers or appointed representatives were soliciting investors for fees, in exchange for settlement of bogus compensation claims related to conduct of business with a number of firms under CySECs supervision.
