Montréal – The Autorité des marchés financiers (the “AMF”) is warning Québec consumers about the activities of Daniel Côté1 and 9260-0485 Québec inc., who are purportedly offering investment programs to Quebeckers through social media and Internet ads.
Daniel Côté and 9260-0485 Québec inc. are not registered with the AMF as a securities dealer and therefore cannot act as such or solicit Québec consumers for investment purposes.
9260-0485 Québec inc. is still registered in the Registre des entreprises du Québec (Québec Enterprise Register) and Daniel Côté might continue soliciting investors.
The AMF reminds investors that it is important to be cautious before investing, regardless of where the companies or individuals offering the investments are from. Investors should ensure that companies and individuals offering to act as intermediaries have the necessary approvals by checking the AMF register on its website or speaking with an agent from the Information Centre.
If you discover suspicious ads or have responded to offers similar to those mentioned above, do not hesitate to contact the AMF’s Information Centre.
The Autorité des marchés financiers (the “AMF”) is the regulatory and oversight body for Québec’s financial sector.
