Consob orders blackout of six more scam broker sites
Actually, all EU states and their regulators should do this! The EU rules on consumer protection stipulate that the respective competent authorities must take the necessary measures to protect their citizens from Internet fraud. One of these measures is the blocking of fraudulent websites. Currently, only the Italian regulator Consob does this, based on a "Growth Decree" law from June 2019 empowering the regulator to block access to websites offering financial services without the proper authorization. On the first day after Easter, Consob blocked another six broker scams.
