Investor Alert: Cryptostocksfx Is Not Registered

The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan (FCAA) warns investors in Saskatchewan of the online entity Cryptostocksfx.

“Safeguard your savings by avoiding unregistered investment entities,” FCAA Securities Division Executive Director Dean Murrison said. “Always check registration status through the National Registration Search before investing with online entities.”

Cryptostocksfx claims to offer Saskatchewan residents trading opportunities, including forex, currency pairs, contracts for difference, crypto, indexes, stocks, energy and commodities.

Cryptostocksfx is not registered in Saskatchewan to trade or sell securities or derivatives. The FCAA cautions investors and consumers not to send money to companies that are not registered in Saskatchewan, as they may not be legitimate businesses. 

If you have invested with Cryptostocksfx or anyone claiming to be acting on their behalf, contact the FCAA’s Securities Division at 306-787-5936.

In Saskatchewan, individuals or companies need to be registered with the FCAA to trade or sell securities or derivatives. The registration provisions of The Securities Act, 1988, and accompanying regulations are intended to ensure that only honest and knowledgeable people are registered to sell securities and derivatives and that their businesses are financially stable.

Tips to protect yourself:

  • Always verify that the person or company is registered in Saskatchewan to sell or advise about securities or derivatives. To check registration, visit The Canadian Securities Administrators’ National Registration Search
  • Know exactly what you are investing in. Make sure you understand how the investment, product or service works.
  • Get a second opinion and seek professional advice about the investment.
  • Do not allow unknown or unverified individuals to remotely access your computer.
