The Financial and Consumer Services Commission (FCNB) has become aware that Bitex.com, which claims to provide online cryptocurrency trading services, is accepting New Brunswick residents as clients. This entity is not registered in New Brunswick to provide such services. Bitex.com appears to be operating out of India.
New Brunswickers are urged to exercise caution when investing with Bitex.com or any unregistered entities or individual(s) as this presents a significant risk. Individuals and firms in the business of advising or trading in securities or derivatives in New Brunswick must be registered with FCNB.
