UK’s financial markets and services provider, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has published a warning against forex broker GreenFields Capital. The broker is doing business in the UK and targeting local citizens without having the required authorization, the FCA said.

The broker is owned and operated by Premium Peak Ltd T. The website provides two addresses: one in London, UK, and another in Prague, the Czech Republic, but mentions nothing about license, nor regulation.

The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has warned on Tuesday that Plus 500 Pro is a clone of the renown forex brokerage Plus500
, which holds a license from FCA, among others. According to FCA, Plus 500 Pro is not authorized to carry out regulated financial services in the UK.

While the fraudulent broker does not explicitly state that it is regulated by FCA, there are claims that its clients would be covered by UK’s Financial Services Compensation Sceme (FSCS). The scheme, of course, is only applicable to clients of entities which are indeed licensed by the Financial Conduct Authority.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has added several unregulated binary options brokers to its warning list.
According to the UK’s financial watchdog, Rbinary, BigOption and VIP Brokers have been providing financial services or products in the UK without its authorisation.


Rbinary does not mention the company that owns it, but claims it's registered on the Marshall Islands. It doesn't fail to mention, however, the large financial returns their services provide.

VIP Brokers is in the same boat - claims it's registered on the Marshall Islands, has several account types with promised returns from 81% to 92% (!!!!).

Nothing is known about BigOption.

Perhaps BigOptions are the same scam :)

I am amazed how offering unlicensed services is such a common practice In country such as UK, where FCA has the reputation as one of the most strict regulators in the industry.
