Always Check With Your Regulators
All these above-mentioned platforms are providing financial services globally from simple websites, hence these are not the only threat to UK residents.
Every individual worldwide can be preyed on by such platforms from the internet.
If you are also taking any financial services, especially through some random online platform, then always inspect the license from the regulatory bodies of your respective region.
Every jurisdiction has regulatory policies which strictly need to follow by investment brokers and financial services providers. If a firm failed to do so, please stay away from them.
Moreover, raise an alert with your financial regulators on suspicion.
