Tortola, British Virgin Islands – 23 January 2017 – The British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (“FSC”) has been made aware that an entity calling itself Base2Tradethat previously operated at www.base2trade.com and presented itself as being incorporated and registered in the Territory.

The FSC can confirm that Base2Trade has never been registered or incorporated as a Business Company in the British Virgin Islands.  Base2Trade has also never been licensed by the FSC to carry on financial services business in or from within the Territory. 

Members of the public are therefore advised to exercise extreme caution if solicited by or conducting business with Base2Trade.
