Please complete the required fields.



The Malta Financial Services Authority (“MFSA” or “the Authority”) has become aware of an entity by the name of Mistral Trading  which has an internet presence at https://mistraltradingltd.com/. This website is using the details of a Maltese Registered Company, Mistral Trading Limited (C 85815), which is a shipping company and does not offer financial services. Fraudsters are using the details of this genuine company in an effort to deceive the public.

The Authority would like to alert the public that https://mistraltradingltd.com/ is NOT a Maltese registered company NOR is it authorised to provide any financial services in or from Malta. Additionally, the MFSA confirms that https://mistraltradingltd.com/ has NO association with the Maltese registered company Mistral Trading Limited (C 85815).

The website https://mistraltradingltd.com/ therefore appears to be a clone of the legitimate entity and the public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the false entity.

For more information on clone companies please refer to the Scam Detection Guidelines issued by the MFSA at https://www.mfsa.mt/consumers/scams-warnings/typical-scams/.
