Italy's Consob Blocks Access to 5 Illegal FX/CFDs Brokers

<p>The Italian financial market supervisory body, Consob, has blacklisted five additional websites offering financial services without any authorization in the country. Announced on Thursday, these websites are either illegal or outright fraud.</p><p>Consob Blacklists Five Platforms</p><p>The five new names added to the long list of Consob's blacklisted websites are Bright Group LLC, (impersonating a legitimate platform), Unico Aust Pty Ltd (operating UnicoFX), CMS Ltd, and Olympusbrokers Ltd.</p><p>All of the listed platforms offer high-risk counterparty trading services. They are listing margin <a href="" class="terms__main-term" id="6faa6714-7f7b-4d23-b1c5-c0d40807d613" target="_blank">forex</a> instruments and contracts for differences (CFDs) instruments of other popular asset classes like shares, indices, commodities, and <a href="" class="terms__secondary-term" id="b091101e-6e02-4b36-aa0e-7c972dfdd6ed" target="_blank">cryptocurrencies</a>.</p><p>None of the listed firms are legally allowed to operate in Italy or any other member state of the European Economic Area. Further, at least one of the five named websites is impersonating the name and license of a legitimate Cyprus-regulated broker, while another looks to be operating with a St. Vincent and the Grenadines registration.</p><p>Check out the FMLS22 session on regulatory roundup for 2023.</p><p>Cosob Blocks Access to Illegal Websites</p><p>In addition to adding their names to the blacklist, Consob is going to <a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">block access to these websites</a> on an internet service provider level. It is the only known European financial supervisor to block access to illegal platforms at the domain level.</p><p>"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," the Italian regulator stated in the official announcement.</p><p>Consob gained the authority to block illegal website access in 2019 through a legislative decree. Since then, it has blacklisted and blocked 825 such illegal platforms offering services within its jurisdictions.</p><p>However, other European regulators are actively red-flagging illegal and fraudulent websites. Last week, the Cypriot regulator warned against <a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">five unregulated forex and CFDs platforms</a>. It even warned against <a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">impersonators of the regulatory website</a>. Meanwhile, Spain's CNMV and the UK's FCA are also actively flagging illegal platforms.</p>
