The Italian regulator CONSOB blacklisted a further seven scam brokers on 3 August 2020. This means that the brokers’ websites will soon no longer be accessible for Italian customer victims. At present, the Italian watchdog is the only regulator using this sensible measure. The number of sites blacked out since July 2019 has thus risen to 268.
