On 12 January 2023, Italian regulator Consob announced that it ordered the black-out of four illegally operating online trading websites related to five broker scams. The total number of black-out orders increase to 820. Consob has been authorized by the so-called “Growth Decree” to order Internet connectivity service providers to inhibit access from Italy to illegal financial websites. Below are the sites to be blacked out:
- TitanCFD with website www.titancfd-fx.com;
- ECC Corp LLC d/b/a EC Capitals with websites https://eccapitals.com and https://ec-capitals.com;
- SevenCapital24 with website https://sevencapital24.com;
- Win Traders with website https://win-traders.com.
The number of websites blacked out since July 2019, when Consob got the power to order that the websites of fraudulent financial intermediaries be blacked out, has thus risen to 820.
