The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) of New Zealand, in its efforts to protect consumers from scams and unauthorized activity in the financial markets, has added a new warning to its website on Monday which highlights the activities of CCM Clearing Limited.
According to its website, CCM Clearing Limited claims to offer: “a trading facility on a wide range of financial instruments, ranging from foreign exchange, foreign exchange options, to Contracts for Differences (CFDs) on stocks like crude oil and precious metals.”
However, the FMA has warned that this firm is not registered to provide financial services in New Zealand. Furthermore, the company has been accused of unreasonably withholding the money of its clients, which has prompted the regulator to warn consumers that it may be a scam.
CCM Clearing Limited operates via its website www.ccmclearing.com and claims its address is Stefano Street, 23A Sophia, Bulgaria. According to the warning, the company is also linked to Rocket Consultant Group and World Advisory Group.

The firm also states that it facilitates forex spot trading and contracts for difference (CFDs) for equity indices, corn, wheat, crude energy, and gold.
