Yesterday on Tuesday September 4th, Belgium’s Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) announced that it has “updated its list of cryptocurrency trading platforms regarding which it has received questions/complaints from consumers and vis-à-vis which it has identified signs of fraud.”
The Belgium financial agency wrote:
“Despite its earlier warnings the FSMA continues to receive new complaints of consumers who have invested in cryptocurrencies through these trading platforms. Hence, the FSMA repeats its warning against the fraudsters behind those platforms who are using cryptocurrencies to swindle consumers.”
The list currently contains 78 crypto platforms, including 28 platforms added on Tuesday. Since early this year, February to be precise, the agency has been keeping a list of crypto trading platforms showing signs of fraud.
Fraudsters “try to attract customers online through fake cryptocurrencies and huge profits,” the agency noted, emphasizing that “the only thing they actually do, however, is take the customers’ money and disappear. It is as simple as that.”
