The Malta Financial Services Authority (“MFSA”) has become aware of an entity which has an internet presence at http://www.tmseuropechina.com/index.asp. This website is making unauthorised use and reference to the head office address of a Maltese registered company, TMS Brokers Europe Limited. TMS Brokers Europe Limited has voluntarily surrendered its Category 3 Investment Services Licence on 29 April 2019. Fraudsters are using the details of this genuine company in an effort to deceive the public.
The Authority would like to inform the public that http://www.tmseuropechina.com/index.asp claims to have a presence in Malta, which does not seem to be the case. The MFSA can confirm that http://www.tmseuropechina.com/index.asp has NO association with TMS Brokers Europe Limited.
The website http://www.tmseuropechina.com/index.asp therefore appears to be a clone of the website of the legitimate entity and that the public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the false entity.

The MFSA would like to remind consumers of financial services not to enter into any financial services transaction unless they have ascertained that the entity with whom the transaction is being made is authorised to provide such services by the MFSA or another reputable financial services regulator. A list of entities licensed by the MFSA can be viewed on the official website of the MFSA at http://www.mfsa.com.mt/pages/licenceholders.aspx.
