The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of CNR Invest, a company that offers investment services to the public in Belgium.
CNR Invest offers consumers investments which they promise will bring substantial profits.
The website it uses is as follows: access.base‐gestion‐cl.com/preview.
In many cases, consumers are contacted by a person calling himself Tom Bogaerts (tom.bogaerts@cnr‐invest.com).
This company and this person do not have the authorization necessary to offer investment services in Belgium.
This firm has also misused the name of the Luxembourg company named CNR Invest.
The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offers made by CNR Invest and against transferring money to any account number that the company might mention.
For more recommendations aimed at avoiding investment fraud, the FSMA invites investors to consult the 'How to recognize and avoid fraud?' page on its website. Also watch the awareness campaign videos (available in French or Dutch only).
We also urge investors always to check that the company in question has the requisite authorization. A simple search via the search function on the FSMA website is all you need. You can also contact the FSMA directly via the consumer contact form.
