The Financial Commission / Commission News / Financial Commission Warns of Trading Licenses Scam Using Fake Certificates  

The Financial Commission, a leading independent, non-governmental self-regulatory organization and external dispute resolution (EDR) forum, warns the public regarding unknown individuals offering so-called “trading licenses” using fake Financial Commission certificates. 

The Financial Commission was recently informed that unknown individuals operating the website and using the email address [email protected] are offering fake certificates purportedly issued by The Financial Commission as so-called “trade certificates” to legitimize possible fraudulent activity or seek monetary gain from unsuspecting victims. Such “certificates” contain a replica of the official trademarked logo of The Financial Commission and other insignia to pass as legitimate certificates issued to genuine approved members of our organization.

This information led The Financial Commission to immediately place the associated website on its Warning List and subsequently issue this notice.

The Financial Commission reminds traders and the public that it does not issue certificates of any kind to individuals and does not license individuals in any capacity. Interested parties can check the membership or certification status of participating members of the Financial Commission on the Members section of the official website. Furthermore, we recommend that anyone presented with a certificate purportedly from The Financial Commission immediately checks the validity of such certificate by emailing [email protected].

Traders and members of the public are also reminded that they can submit information regarding possible clones or fraudulent websites of brokers and purported dispute resolution services to [email protected] for further investigation by The Financial Commission to root out scams and protect the trading community.
