Hong Kong financial regulator the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) has issued a warning regarding two websites operating as clones of regulated broker South China Forex Limited and its affiliated companies South China Capital Limited, South China Research Limited, South China Securities Limited and South China Commodities Limited, all of which are SFC-licensed corporations.
The near-identical sites – nhjr999.com and jmusics.com – claim to be operated by a company called South China International. They also include banners of UK regulator FCA on their websites.
The SFC calls the clone websites suspicious, and notes that suspicious website operators often use names similar to legitimate companies to confuse investors.
