Investor Alert For Magnum Options and Hampshire Capital Ventures Ltd.

The Nova Scotia Securities Commission is cautioning investors about Magnum Options, which is offering binary options via an online trading platform to Nova Scotians.

Magnum Options also appears to go by the name of Hampshire Capital Ventures Ltd., and it is known to have used websites magnumoptions.com and magnumoptions.eu. However, these entities are not registered to sell securities in Nova Scotia.

At least one Nova Scotian has reported seeing an advertisement from Magnum Options on Facebook, created an account on its website using a credit card, and subsequently lost money.

Similar warnings about Magnum Options have been issued in
Manitoba and British Columbia. Nova Scotia recently released a general warning relating to binary options. Full details are available at http://nssc.novascotia.ca/before-you-invest/warning-nova-scotians-about-binary-options.

The commission urges Nova Scotians to exercise extreme caution when dealing with firms that are not registered in Nova Scotia.

It is illegal to solicit investments in Nova Scotia without registering with the commission and complying with Nova Scotia securities laws. To see if a company or person is registered, you can check aretheyregistered.ca/ and the Canadian Securities Administration website at http://www.csa-acvm.ca/.

Contact the Nova Scotia Securities Commission at nssc.novascotia.ca/recognize-and-report-scam to report fraudulent activity.
