The LME requests that all individuals and organisations beware of rogue organisations falsely claiming to be associated with the LME. From time to time, such rogue organisations use the LME’s registered trade marks including "The London Metal Exchange" and "LME" on their websites with the aim of falsely passing off their business as being affiliated with/linked to the LME.
We also would advise caution when accessing rogue websites as we do not know where such websites are hosted from and whether they are safe to access from an IT security perspective. Certain websites have attempted trick unknowing consumers into parting with their savings or trading on their platform, with a view to defrauding consumers.
We have also recently been made aware of NFTs masquerading as originating from the LME, or using the "London Metal Exchange" or "LME" names. The LME has not created and does not promote any NFTs, so please do not engage with any sites purporting to distribute NFTs in relation to the LME.
If you are the victim of such a fraud, or suspect someone of impersonating a representative of LME, please report the case to your local law enforcement agency.
Below, is a list of the rogue websites that the LME has been made aware of. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you become aware of any other rogue websites:
