The Italian stock exchange and financial sector regulator CONSOB (Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa) announced last Friday that it has added 5 new scammer websites to its ever increasing list of blacklisted domains.
An official statement published on the website of the watchdog ordered Internet services providers to prevent access to the flagged websites from all of the Italian territory. One of the main reasoning behind this decision is that the websites were offering financial products and services without any prior authorization
The blacklisted websites are as follows:
- Trust Pixs Limited (www.trustpixs.com and https://my.trustpixs.com)
- “EqualityFin” (equalityfin.com and client.equalityfin.com)
- Scintilla Enterprise Ltd (solidstocks.cc)
- Miva Solutions LLC (delitraders.net and client.delitraders.net)
- Ingenue Consulting LLC (tradon.io)
CONSOB is Italy’s financial regulator and is currently based in Rome. Currently, it has blacklisted a total of 645 websites, since June of 2019, that have been proven to have conducted illicit and fraudulent activities. It’s at that time that CONSOB received the unique power to shut down scammer websites. For now, CONSOB is the only regulator to be able to do so.
Global regulators and financial authorities are struggling to keep up with the prevalence of scammer schemes and fraudulent services. Nations will be increasing their efforts in the near future, while certain agencies and governments have already began serious talks of reforms.
