The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) obtained a federal court consent order against defendant Enfinium Pty Ltd (Enfinium) of Sydney, Australia, for soliciting and accepting foreign currency (forex) orders from U.S. customers without being registered with the CFTC.
The consent order of permanent injunction, entered February 24, 2012, by Judge Harry D. Leinenweber of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, requires Enfinium to pay an $80,000 civil monetary penalty. The order also requires Enfinium to cease and desist from soliciting and accepting orders from U.S. customers who are not Eligible Contract Participants (ECPs) and offering to act as a counterparty to such customers’ forex transactions until it has registered with the CFTC. The order directs Enfinium to prominently display a notice on its website that Enfinium does not provide services for U.S. customers.
The order further prohibits Enfinium from trading on any CFTC-registered entity, entering any transactions, controlling or directing trading, or soliciting, receiving or accepting funds for transactions involving commodity futures, options, security futures products, or foreign currency for or from any non-ECP U.S. customers until Enfinium has registered with the CFTC.
