The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) has warned about an entity with an internet presence at http://securetrading-services.com/ which is falsely claiming to be associated with a licenced and authorised entity.

These fraudsters are using the details of a genuine entity in an effort to deceive the public both in Malta and abroad. The public chould be aware that http://securetrading-services.com/ claims to have presence in France, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom with a headquarters in 5 Avenue Kleber, 75016 Paris, France, which are believed to be false.

The MFSA can also confirm that http://securetrading-services.com/ has no association with the authorised and licenced company; namely Secure Trading Financial services Limited which is a Malta-based company with registered offices in Ewropa Business Centre, Level 2, Triq Dun Karm Birkirkara, and whose company registration number is C-56013.
