The broker’s product portfolio includes nearly 30 currency pairs, CFDs on precious metals, energies and several cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Dash, and Litecoin, said an online authority on such kind of financial services, Forex Brokers.

“Switzerland’s financial markets and services regulator FINMA has blacklisted GCG Asia for conducting unauthorized activities in the country.”

Further online checks showed that the company was registered in China and was stamped ILLEGAL by WikiFX,  a third-party service provider for clients to inquire whether a Forex broker is formal, legal and real.

GCG Asia was reportedly shuttered in Indonesia in early May and Darren Yaw was said to be a wanted person in Indonesia for illegal trading in crypto currency and for defrauding unknowing investors.
