ASIC raises crypto scam alert against Alliance Limited



The Australian Securities and Investments Commission warned against suspicious website called Alliance Limited (alliancelimited.org) that is misleading crypto-asset (crypto-currency) investors.

The regulator found that the website wrongly displays ASIC’s logo to give the impression that ASIC endorses the investment.
