Watch out for bitcenter.co.uk and fenixsecurities.online platforms
The BitCenter broker on its website provides information that the company that supervises the platform’s functioning is Bitcentr LTD, the parent company of which is Northern Trust Global Services SE. The broker announces that Northern Trust Global Services SE has obtained a temporary authorization that allows EEA companies to operate in the UK for a limited period while applying for a full authorization. Details are to be available on the FCA Financial Conduct Authority website.
We have checked the above information. Northern Trust Global Services SE has been granted a provisional authorization. However, the regulator only lists www.ntrs.com and www.northerntrust.com platforms, most likely not affiliated with bitcenter.co.uk.
Moreover, on the website of the BitCenter platform, there is the name of the company “BIT CENTR LTD”, the reference number of which is to be 13552523. This company exists in the British register of companies.
The Bitcenter.co.uk website may imitate the companies mentioned above and have no affiliation. The data is used to arouse the trust of a potential investor.
An investor aggrieved by this platform contacted us:
The company, through its telemarketers, encourages investments in cryptocurrencies, raw materials and currency pairs. It offers manual trading and trading with trading bots. The minimum deposit required to start trading on the platform is 200 EUR. In order to prove its credibility, it sends a forged license from the Polish Financial Supervision Authority. Another scam, ViaMarketsGo, was using the same fake license, only with a changed name. Telemarketers have an Eastern accent.
We also warn you about the fenixsecurities.site platform and the related website: platform.fenixsecurities.online. On the broker’s website, we cannot find information about the company that manages the platform to give credibility to the broker’s activity. It is also in vain to look for details about the license that is necessary to be able to offer investment products. We base our warning on the victim’s report. The investor informs about problems with the withdrawal of funds.
In the broker’s regulations, you will find information indicating that the payment of funds from the application submission takes up to 10 days. The aggrieved party reports that 6 months are waiting to execute the payment claim.
The website may be a continuation of the scam we warned against in July 2021, but the platform offered services at fenixsecurities.eu, which is unavailable today.
