The Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC) is issuing a second warning regarding the website www.etrustcoin.com. This website is purporting to be incorporated within Gibraltar and falsely claiming to be licensed by the GFSC. The website also includes a quotation which is falsely attributed to the Minister for Digital and Financial Services.
Etrustcoin.com has not been licensed or authorised by the GFSC, nor is an application pending for authorisation. Additionally, the Minister has never commented on or been associated with the website www.etrustcoin.com. This webpage also displays the GFSC logo which has been applied without the consent of the GFSC.
