Italy’s Companies and Exchange Commission (CONSOB) has ordered the blocking of access to five unauthorized investment websites.

The websites targeted by the latest set of orders are:

  • “Tcrinvest” (website and related pages and;
  • “Interactive” (website and related pages and;
  • “” (website and related page;
  • “BGB Partners” (website and related pages and;
  • “FDXCrypto” (website and related pages and

In issuing the orders, the Authority availed itself of the powers deriving from the “Decreto crescita” (“Growth Decree”; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, Article no. 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.

Thus, the total number of sites blocked by Consob has risen to 1029 since July 2019, when the Authority was given the power to order the blocking of the websites of abusive financial intermediaries.

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 blocking to be implemented.

Please note that some of the above-listed entities may be clones, that is, entities that abuse the details (name, logo, etc) of authorized investment firms. In fact, clones have nothing to do with the authorized businesses. If you make use of the services of clones, your funds will not be protected.
