FCA: Gold FX Trading/GFT (clone of FCA authorised firm)

This is what we call a ‚clone firm‘; and fraudsters usually use this tactic when contacting people out of the blue, so you should be especially wary if you have been cold called. They may use the name of the genuine firm, the ‚firm reference number‘ (FRN) we have given the authorised firm or other details.
