The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Charles van Deursen, a company that offers investment services.
Charles van Deursen is not an authorized investment firm in Belgium. It is therefore not allowed to provide investment services in or from Belgium.
Moreover, according to the information available to the FSMA, the activities proposed could be of a fraudulent nature, i.e. boiler room fraud. More information on this form of fraud is available in the general warning published by the FSMA on 6 June 2017.
The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial services made by Charles van Deursen and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
Charles van Deursen uses the website www.charlesvandeursen.com, the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, the phone number +81 3457 04326 and the fax number +81 3636 94539. It claims to have its registered office in Japan (Mita Kokusai Building, 108-0073 Tokyo).
If you wish to check in general whether a proposed transaction complies with the financial regulations, please use the search function (available in Dutch and French only) on the website of the FSMA. You can also contact the FSMA using our contact form.
