Acatis Investment Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH (clone)
- Waarschuwing MFSA Malta
The Malta Financial Services Authority ("MFSA") has become aware of an entity which had an internet presence at www.acatrades.com and https://acatrade.de/. These websites were falsely claiming to be associated with a licenced and authorised entity from a different jurisdiction. Fraudsters are using the details of this genuine company in an effort to deceive the public.
The Authority would like to inform the public that www.acatrades.com and https://acatrade.de/ claimed to have a presence in Malta, which does not seem to be the case. The MFSA can confirm that www.acatrades.com and https://acatrade.de/ have NO association with the authorised and licenced company Acatis Investment Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH regulated by BaFin, having its registered office address at Main Building, Taunusanlage 18 Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
The MFSA confirms that www.acatrades.com and https://acatrade.de/ are clones of a legitimate entity and that the public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the false entity.
The MFSA would like to remind consumers of financial services not to enter into any financial services transaction unless they have ascertained that the entity with whom the transaction is being made is authorised to provide such services by the MFSA or another reputable financial services regulator. Investors should also be extra cautious when being approached with offers of financial services via unconventional channels such as telephone calls or social media.
