The regulator states that Zeus Tech & Trading Group Ltd is an unknown entity.

The agency responsible for the financial regulation in Luxembourg, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF), has published a warning on its website on Friday against an entity named Zeus Tech & Trading Group Ltd.

According to the warning, Zeus Tech & Trading Group Ltd operates via www.fibonetix.com and claims to be established at 59, Boulevard Royal, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg District.

“The CSSF informs the public that an entity named Zeus Tech & Trading Group Ltd is not known to it and has not been granted any authorisation to provide investment services or other financial services in or from Luxembourg,” the statement said.

Taking a look at the website, Fibonetix claims to be an online trading provider of contracts-for-differences (CFDs), foreign exchange (forex), cryptocurrencies, commodities, indices, stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

“The primary focus is on our clients – traders’ needs are in the heart of our operations. Our purpose is to remain among the industry leaders and endure our reputation as an accountable and safe broker,” the entity states.

CSSF warns of S&P Broker

The warning on Friday follows on from the CSSF recently flagging an entity by the name of S&P Broker. As Finance Magnates reported, the Luxembourg regulator said last month that the entity is an unknown company and that it has not been granted any authorisation to provide investment services or other financial services in or from Luxembourg.

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.
