The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) has published a warning on its website, speaking against Boom Xchange. According to the statement, the company is providing false information on its website.
Specifically, via its website boomxchange.com, the company has provided the license number and copied content from Lead Capital Markets Ltd, a Cyprus investment firm. According to the warning, this information was taken without the permission of Lead Capital Markets.
CySEC also points out the Lead Capital Markets has no connection with Boom Xchange. As a result, the watchdog urges consumers to be wary of this firm, as a legitimate company would have no need to copy information from another company’s website, nor falsely claim to be affiliated with them.

Due to the above revelations, Boom Xchange is not actually a licensed firm in Cyprus and is therefore not allowed to provide financial services or products to residents of the country. Because of this its best to give the company a wide berth and take your money elsewhere.
