FMA warning

The New Zealand watchdog found that representatives of TFR Global offer private investment in Merlin Biotechnologies to New Zealand residents. TFR Global and Merlin Biotechnologies are not incorporated companies or registered financial service providers in New Zealand and they are therefore not permitted to provide financial services/products in the country.

TFR Global claim they are regulated by Investment Capital and Financial Regulatory Services (ICFRS), however this regulator does not exist.

Bitmarket claim to be registered and authorised to provide financial services in New Zealand when it is not. Bitmarket is not on the New Zealand Companies Register or the New Zealand Financial Service Providers Register (FSPR).

FMA also discovered that Great Motivation International is falsely claiming to be related to Great Motivation International Company Limited, an incorporated company in New Zealand. Great Motivation International is also falsely claiming to be regulated in NZ and by the FSPR.
