The Autorité des Marchés Financiers regularly updates its black lists of new websites and entities proposing atypical investments to investors in France without being authorized to do so.
Here is the list of the new websites recently identified in the atypical investments category:
Since January 1, 2021, the AMF has added 25 websites to its list of unauthorized entities proposing atypical investments. compared with 78 for the whole of 2020, reflecting the sharp decline in fraudulent offers in the miscellaneous asset area.
Since the creation, in 2017, of this black list, which identified websites that were illegally offering diamonds for investment, the AMF has added 361 unauthorised internet addresses to this list, in various categories like livestock, wines or champagne, or, more recently, luxury watches.
These websites may change very quickly and these lists presented in alphabetic or thematic order are not intended to be exhaustive.
Any offer to invest in miscellaneous assets must be registered with the AMF to be marketed. The white list of offers recorded in miscellaneous assets is available on the AMF website.
