Who is Stéphane Delaplace? The Autorité des marchés financiers has issued a public warning, cautioning against the fraudulent use of its name and contact details of this individual, who has no connection with the AMF. The warning is a direct response to individuals receiving messages from a man named Stéphane Delaplace, who has presented himself as the Head of the “AMF Regulation Center.”
Mr. Delaplace has also been claiming to be investigating the trading platform http://www.union-crypto.com. It should be noted that the AMF does not employ anyone by the name of Stéphane Delaplace and any contact or correspondence with this individual should be avoided.

Furthermore, the trading platform apparently under investigation, i.e., http://www.union-crypto.com was recently notified by the ACPR (Prudential Supervisory Authority and resolution). In doing so, the AMF could not exercise its activity of trading on the French territory without receiving adequate authorizations to provide investment services.
Such impersonations or fraudulent attempts are not unheard of, with many scammers now looking to pass themselves off as part of legitimate regulatory authorities. Such misinformation is commonplace, and any individual who is unsure of the credentials of anyone is invited to explore the AMF website.
Furthermore, the AMF is also inviting any and all people who receive an email from Stéphane Delaplace or any other person who reports that they belong to the AMF not to follow up on this message. Instead, the authority has recommended contacting AMF Epargne info service on 01 53 45 62 00 Monday to Friday during business hours.
