Consob blocks access to SaxoFX, AdroFX, and Trades FF Pips

abdelaziz Fathi

In yet another episode in a long-running campaign, the Italian financial regulator, Consob, once again blocked access to a number of investment websites, including those holding licenses in other jurisdictions.


Fraudsters could pass themselves off as regulated financial services providers as a result of the ability to register domain names under relevant suffixes such as ‘.bank’ and ‘.fin’, Consob said.

The Italian market securities market regulator has been on a rampant crackdown to protect retail investors by making illegal financial services inaccessible.

Additionally, this includes product offers by firms holding licenses in other jurisdictions. The strict actions on these unauthorized actors in the market come as offshore brokers continue to chase online trading business in Italy.

In its latest crackdown, the Consob has contacted Italy’s internet service providers, requesting them to block access to:

A glimpse at the websites of the brokers added out by the Italian financial regulator shows a well-known tactic to attract inexperienced clients to trade highly leveraged products.

Some of these websites are offering bonus schemes for their clients to the tune of 100 percent of their deposits. With the usual draconian conditions required to withdraw funds from the account once a bonus is applied, the end-result for such tactics are usually disgruntled clients who have withdrawal issues. With the Forex brokerage industry in the developed world being forced to halt any such practices, offshore jurisdictions remain tolerant of bonus schemes.
