The clone entity operates under the domain name admiral-crypto.com, which prompted action from the regulated company. Admiral Markets confirmed that it has no association whatsoever with ‎the aforementioned website and advised everyone to avoid it entirely.‎

Admiral-crypto is indeed attempting to mislead investors into ‎thinking that it is offering ‎a ‎‎legal product by using the ‎details of an authorised firm operating under a similar name ‎‎‎name.‎ It also claims to be ‎licensed by the FCA, ‎using the regulated firm’s registered ‎address and making reference to its ‎actual website, a typical move for a scam ‎company to gain the ‎trust of unsuspecting clients.
