Warnings from Consob



The Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa (CONSOB) has ordered the black-out of 5 new websites that offer financial services illegally.

The commission availed itself of the new powers resulting from the “Decreto Crescita” (“Growth Decree”; Law no. 58 of 28 June 2019, Article 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 authorisation. 

Below are the sites Consob has ordered to be blacked out: 
     Bitblanco (website www.bitblanco.com and its page https://webtrader.bitblanco.com);
     Alphascrypto (website www.alphascrypto.uk);
     Billionaire Trade Ltd(website https://billionaire-trade.com and its relative pages https://panel.billionaire-trade.com and https://trading.billionaire-trade.com);
     Infinity Invest (website https://infinityinvest.pro and its pages https://office.infinityinvest.pro and https://trade.infinityinvest.pro);
     CustomhouseCL (website www.customhousecl.com and its pageshttps://client.customhousecl.com and https://platform.tnxtechno.com).

The number of sites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob was given the power to order the black-out of websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries, has thus risen to 970.
