European Commodities Commission (ECC)
The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of the European Commodities Commission (ECC).
According to the information available to the FSMA, the European Commodities Commission presents itself as a supervisory authority in Belgium whose objective is to supervise undertakings that offer investors "offshore investments" in order to protect such investors.
The ECC claims to have its registered office at the following address: Antwerp Business Center, De Keyserlei 5b, box 58, 2018 Antwerp. It uses the website www.europeancommoditiescommission.com.
The ECC is unknown to the FSMA. It improperly presents itself as a financial supervisor with a Belgian address. The institution appears to be used as a front in order to give an impression of trustworthiness to certain investments offered to the public by persons who do not have the requisite authorization in Belgium.
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 (email address: firstname.lastname@example.org).
