Red Shield Financial / Rong Aviva Limited
The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Red Shield Financial, a company that offers investment services.
Red Shield Financial 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 Red Shield Financial and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
Red Shield Financial uses the website www.redshieldfinancial.com, the email address email@example.com and the phone number + 852 3015 2817. It claims to have registered offices in Hong Kong (88 Queensway, Central, Hong Kong Island), as well as in China (Heng Long Square, 1266 West Nanjing Road, Puxi, Shanghai), Taiwan (Tunnar Tower, 97-101, Tun Hwa South Street, Daan, Taipei) and Japan (Shinjuku Oak Tower, 6-8-1 Nishi Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo).
The firm also uses a bank account supposedly opened in the name of the Rong Aviva Limited company.
It appears, moreover, to have ties with Cressman Financial Group and Thornwood Financial, two firms that have also been the subjects of a warning published by the FSMA.
Red Shield Financial has already been the subject of a mise en garde by the Hong Kong supervisory authority (SFC), dated 24 October 2016.
