Again Bulgarian FX Broker Attack – BaFin Warning Against Britonprice

Spread financial intelligence

Germany’s financial supervisory authority (BaFin) warned investors of the activities of a venture called Britonprice. According to the BaFin warning, this is a Bulgarian broker offering financial products in the country without the required authorization. Bulgarian companies did so over the last couple of years ripping off binary options & CFD investors and now crypto investors.

A Vast Scheme And Busy Perpetrators

The BaFin warning says that Britonprice is operated by an Elit Property Vision Ltd. Looking at their website www.britonprice.com one learns that it is operated by a Britonprice FinServices Ltd, registered in Sofia, Bulgaria. Neither company can be found in the Bulgarian companies register or the Bulgarian open source database Bivol. Maybe they registered their companies offshore in the Marshall Islands or Seychelles.

The perpetrators behind the scheme, however, are evidently involved in a range other broker scams:

  • The illegal broker site RichmondFG (www.richmondfg.com) is allegedly also owned and operated by Elit Property Vision Ltd according to a public warning issued by the Italien watchdog CONSOB in March 2019. RichmondFG was also blacklisted by the Bulgarian Financial Supervision Commission (FSC).
  • the crypto broker Bitcoinoie (www.bitcoinoie.com) is also operated by Elit Property Vision Ltd and a company called Bitcoinoie FinServices Ltd which claims to be registered in Sofia, Bulgaria.
  • The illegal forex retail broker PrimexClub, (www.primexclub.com) evidently a crypto broker scam is operated by Elit Property Vision LTD.
  • According to the BaFin warning, the crypto broker CryptoFG (www.cryptofg.com) is also connected with Elit Property Vision Ltd. Just recently the official operator was changed on the scheme’s website to a Galaxy Capital Ltd in Bulgaria.
  • The forex broker StockSTPbrokers (www.stockstpbrokers.com) is another illegal broker operated by Elit Property Vision Ltd.
  • The Capital245 (www.capital245.com) broker scam was also operated by Elit Property Vision Ltd before the operating entity was switched into a Bali Limited Ltd and a Capital245 FinSerives Ltd in Bulgaria.
  • Bali Limited Ltd, in turn, is connected to a variety of scam brokers such as 4Ugroups, OriginalCrypto, or StocksCall.

Busy perpetrators, right? And like for Israeli Gal Barak and his E&G Bulgaria, Sofia and Bulgaria seem to be the right place to operate scams attacking EU victims. The local politicians and enforcement agencies are protecting them from extradition.

    I got done by Option888 years ago, I’m surprised they would still be going. Maybe I still have their rep on Skype, I shall check and get back to you.
