The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced the filing of a civil enforcement action in the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah against Tallinex a/k/a Tallinex Limited (Tallinex), of Tallinn, Estonia, and General Trader Fulfillment (GTF), a Nevada company doing business in Pleasant Grove, Utah. The CFTC’s Complaint charges Tallinex with operating as a Retail Foreign Exchange Dealer (RFED), without being registered as such with the CFTC, and with fraudulently soliciting U.S. resident customers to trade leveraged foreign currencies (forex). The Complaint charges GTF with acting as an unregistered Introducing Broker (IB) by soliciting U.S. customers to open forex trading accounts with Tallinex. Specifically, from at least September 2012 and continuing to at least September 2016, Tallinex fraudulently solicited and accepted at least $1.5 million from U.S. customers in connection with leveraged or margined forex transactions, to which it was or offered to be the counterparty. Moreover, according to the Complaint, in the course of soliciting retail forex customers, Tallinex made fraudulent misrepresentations and omissions of material fact and engaged in fraudulent and deceptive business practices.
