The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Hawk Trade, a company that offers investment services.
Hawk Trade is not an authorized investment firm in Belgium. It is therefore not allowed to provide investment services in or from Belgium.
This firm claims to have its registered office in Japan at the Tokyo Daiya Building No. 5, Level 8, 1-28-23 Shinkawa, Tokyo, Tokyo-to and uses the website www.hawktrade.com.
The FSMA thus advises against responding to any offer of financial service made by Hawk Trade and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
According to the information available to the FSMA, this may be a form of boiler room fraud. More information on boiler room fraud is available in another press release published the same day by the FSMA.
