The Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC) is issuing a warning regarding the website https://www.intetrader.com and the entity therein referred to as Intetrader.
This website appears to be using the UK Firm Reference Number issued to Intertrader Limited (a genuine Gibraltar registered company) as well as using the UK branch office address of the genuine firm, that being City Tower, 40 Basinghall Street, London, EC2V 5DE. Intetrader appears to be a ‘clone company’, in that it is using details of the genuine firm (Intertrader Limited) as their own. This suspected clone company purports to offer Investments, Forex type trading and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) services.
The genuine firm (Intertrader Limited) makes it clear that neither https://www.intetrader.com nor any entity referred to on this website are in any way associated with the activities of Intertrader Limited, a company legally registered in Gibraltar. This suspected clone’s name (Intetrader) and website address closely resembles that of the genuine firm (Intertrader Limited), only differing by one letter, and so care should be taken not to confuse the two.
Companies and individuals carrying out financial service activities in Gibraltar have to be authorised by the GFSC. Neither https://www.intetrader.com nor the entity therein referred to as Intetrader are authorised by the GFSC, nor are any applications currently pending for authorisation. This suspected clone company may be targeting consumers.
