Amicus Investment Ltd.
De Oostenrijkse toezichthouder Financial Market Authority en de Belgische toezichthouder FSMA waarschuwen tegen de activiteiten van Amicus Investment
Het bericht van de Belgische toezichthouder FSMA (09-02-2017):
The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Amicus Investment, a company that offers investment services.
Amicus Investment is not an authorized investment firm in Belgium. It is therefore not allowed to provide investment services in or from Belgium.
Moreover, according to the information available to the FSMA, the activities proposed could be of a fraudulent nature, i.e. boiler room fraud. More information on this form of fraud is available in the general warning published by the FSMA on 9 February 2017.
The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial services made by Amicus Investment and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
Amicus Investment uses the website www.amicusinvest.com, the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and the phone number +43 720 116 821. It claims to have its registered office in Austria (Post Box 102827, Industriestrasse 31, Lauterach 6923).
Amicus Investment has already been the subject of a warning by the Austrian supervisory authority (FMA), dated 13 November 2016.
If you wish to check in general whether a proposed transaction complies with the financial regulations, please use the search function (available in Dutch and French only) on the website of the FSMA. You can also contact the FSMA directly using our contact form.
