The agency responsible for the financial regulation in Luxembourg, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) continues to post an increasing number of warnings against suspected scams.
This Friday, the regulator has warned consumers of the activities of an entity by the name of Webnet Ltd. According to the watchdog, the entity operates via www.2dots.com and claims to be established at 5, rue Heinrich Heine, Luxembourg 19857.
“The CSSF informs the public that Webnet Ltd is unknown to it and that the entity has not been granted any authorisation to provide investment services or other financial services in or from Luxembourg,” the warning said.
Following the URL, Webnet Ltd claims to be a broker, offering to trade in foreign exchange (forex), contracts for differences (CFDs), commodities, stocks, indices, and cryptocurrencies.

CSSF continues to flag unauthorized entities
The Luxembourg regulator has remained vigilant in warning the public about suspicious entities. As Finance Magnates reported, the CSSF published a statement stating that an entity named Zeus Tech & Trading Group Ltd is operating in the country without the proper authorization.
Similar to the entity flagged today, the trading brand of the entity Fibonetix claims to be an online trading provider of CFDs, forex, cryptocurrencies, commodities, indices, stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
Financial regulators across the globe have their hands full when trying to detect and identify scams. This is because there is an increasing number of them, particularly in the cryptocurrency and forex space.
