  • “Top Markets LTD” (website and the related page;
  • “CryptosMarket” (website;
  • “GMT Brokers Ltd” (sito internet and the related page

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 1089. Last week, the regulator ordered the blocking of access to five unauthorised websites, including those operated by SeguroFX and Sigma Capital.

The black-out of these websites by Internet service providers operating in Italy is ongoing. For technical reasons, it can take several days for the blocking to be implemented.

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.
