The Financial regulator of Luxembourg, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) has recently come out with a statement saying that a “local” company by the name of Cryptominingoptionsignal has falsified claims on possessing all the required licenses and documentation to operate within the country.
The regulator presses the issue that the firm has not been known until only recently and they have most definitely not even tried to apply for a license in the country. All of this information warrants extreme caution from the side of the investors.
However, the warning may have been redundant for crypto veterans who have gone through years of looking at scammers come and go. Having a name like Cryptominingoptionsignal is already a major red flag simply due to the firm’s rebrandability, which we already know is a common tactic among scammers.
The Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) has been quite vigilant in finding and pointing out potential scammers in the country, as the most recent update was only a few months ago. Other regulators across the world are also finding scammers left right and center, indicating the overall mobilization of the authorities’ vigilance.
