The Autorité des Marchés Financiers and the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution warn the public against the activities of several websites and entities proposing forex investments or proposing online investment services in France for derivatives whose underlyings include crypto assets

With the objective of protecting investors, the AMF and the ACPR regularly update their black lists of new websites and entities offering investments in the unregulated foreign exchange (Forex) market in France and sites offering derivative products whose underlyings include crypto assets without being authorised to do so.

New unauthorized websites recently identified on Forex:

Here is the list of new websites recently identified:

  • www.capitaltradefx.com / Capital TradeFx Ltd
  • www.fargo-global.com / Fargo Global Limited
  • www.grandcapital.net / Grand Capital Ltd
  • www.hqbroker.com / HQ Broker
  • www.investors-strategy.com/fr/reussir-vos-investissements/ / Kito Marketing
  • www.lh-broker.com / Larson and Holz IT Ltd
  • www.lockwoodinv.com / Elit Property Vision Lt

New unauthorized websites recently identified on derivative products whose underlying include crypto assets:

Here is the list of new websites recently identified:

  • www.cryptoprofx.com
  • www.interactifonline.com
  • www.lh-crypto.com
  • www.stscrypto.com/fr/

These lists of all unauthorized websites to offer investments on the unregulated foreign exchange (Forex) or derivative products whose underlying include crypto assets are available in the AMF’s website (section: Espace épargnants > Protéger son épargne > Listes noires) and the application AMF Protect Epargne,  and the Assurance Banque Épargne Info Service - ABE IS's website (section: Vos démarches > Se protéger contre les arnaques > Les listes noires des sites internet et entités non autorisés).

These websites may change very quickly and these lists are not intended to be exhaustive. 

To ensure that the intermediary offering banking or financial products or services is authorised to operate in France, you can view the register of financial agents (https://www.regafi.fr) or the list of authorised intermediaries in the financial investment advisor (FIA) or participating investment advisor (PIA) categories (https://www.orias.fr/search).

If the intermediary in question is not on any of the last two lists, we strongly recommend that you should not make use of their services, as they are in breach of the applicable legislation and are not required to comply with basic rules of investor protection, information disclosure and claims handling.
