The company also does not comply with the reporting requirements for securities and derivatives transactions, such as filing prospectuses, financial statements, trade confirmations, and account statements. The ASC warns that investors who deal with unregistered entities like CatalyXIt are exposed to significant risks of losing their money or becoming victims of identity theft.

Defensive Measures Against Fraudulent Brokers:
The ASC advises investors to be cautious and vigilant when dealing with online trading platforms like CatalyXIt. The ASC recommends that investors should:
– Check the registration status of any entity that offers securities or derivatives trading services in Alberta or Canada by using the National Registration Search tool on the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) website.
– Avoid sending money or personal information to entities that are not registered or authorized by any securities regulator in Canada or elsewhere.
– Be wary of entities that promise high returns, low fees, or guaranteed profits without disclosing the risks involved in securities or derivatives trading.
– Be skeptical of entities that use aggressive marketing tactics, such as unsolicited calls, emails, texts, or social media messages.
– Be alert for signs of fraud, such as inconsistent or unrealistic information, pressure to act quickly or urgently, requests for upfront payments or fees, or difficulties in accessing or withdrawing funds.
