CALGARY – August 7, 2018 – The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) is warning Alberta investors to exercise caution if solicited by investoneforme, a purported investment firm headquartered in Brazil.
The public should be aware that investoneforme is not registered to sell securities or derivatives in Alberta.
There are several “red flags” common to illegal investment schemes present in investoneforme’s promotions:
If you are considering an investment opportunity through a company that is not registered, be sure to understand whether the company is complying with applicable securities laws. The ASC encourages all investors to check the registration status of any person or company selling investments to Canadians using the Canadian Securities Administrators’ National Registration Search database:www.aretheyregistered.ca.
The ASC is the regulatory agency responsible for administering the province's securities laws. It is entrusted with fostering a fair and efficient capital market in Alberta and with protecting investors. As a member of the Canadian Securities Administrators, the ASC works to improve, coordinate and harmonize the regulation of Canada's capital markets.
