The Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) hereby announces that, on 16 July 2010, it imposed an order for incremental penalty payments on: Direct Field Marketing, with its registered office at Arena Boulevard 129 / 133 EP (1101 DM) in Amsterdam Zuidoost. The order for incremental penalty payments was imposed because Direct Field Marketing has failed to comply with the request for information from the supervisors of the AFM. The AFM requested information from Direct Field Marketing because it suspects that this institution has provided or continues to provide financial services without a permit from the AFM for this purpose.
Direct Field Marketing did not supply the requested information by the deadline and is therefore required to make incremental penalty payments. The requested information still needs to be provided to the AFM.
If you have any questions or comments you can contact the Financial Markets Information Line on: 0900-5400 540 (5 eurocents per minute).
