Online financial abuses: Consob's supervisory experience

The experience gained in the field of action to combat illegal activities has highlighted a wide range of variegated and particularly invasive cases, also thanks to digital technologies which have, on the one hand, further developed forms of remote interaction and, on the other , allowed the creation of "captivating" operating methods.
The abusive subjects operate mainly through websites and use, as contact channels to promote their initiatives with savers, above all e-mails, chats, social networks and telephone solicitations (so-called cold calling).
The most recurring cases of abusive provision of investment services are represented by trading services, offered to users through online platforms that also give access to operating methods that have experienced strong growth in recent years such as social trading, which allows clients to "copy" the investment strategies of other traders, as well as the automatic replication of operations or trading strategies formulated by software that operate on the basis of predefined algorithms.
In the last three years, Consob has blocked almost 700 websites of illegal operators.
