The total number of websites Consob had blocked since it gained its powers back in July 2019, has risen up to 239. Moreover, in ordering Internet service providers (ISPs) to “black out” the websites, the authority refers to the “Growth Decree”. This piece of legislation allows the blocking of access to an illicit financial services website from Italian territory. It, however, takes several days to implement the blocking.

Before the “Growth Decree” was implemented, Consob typically counted on warnings in order to protect investors from getting involved with fraudulent investment schemes.
