Decentra has received a securities fraud warning from Peru’s Superintendencia de Banca.
As per the SBS’ July 12th warning, Decentra does “not have authorization from the SBS to collect money from the public”.
It should be noted that according to article 11 of Law No. 26702, General Law of the Financial System and the Insurance System and Organic Law of the Superintendence of Banking and Insurance, any person who intends to collect or receive money from third parties, in the form of a deposit, mutual or any other modality, requires prior authorization from the SBS.
This is the equivalent of a securities fraud warning in other jurisdictions.
Decentra is a continuation of Jonathan Sifuentes’ collapsed Xifra Lifestyle Ponzi scheme. The majority of Xifra Lifestyle victims are in Mexico and the US.
Sifuentes (right), fled to Dubai following his arrest by Mexican authorities earlier this year.
Before he fled the US for Mexico, Arizona filed securities fraud charges against Sifuentes in 2020.
The ACC Securities Division’s allegations pertain to My Trader Coin, a Ponzi scheme Sifuentes promoted prior to launching Xifra Lifestyle.
Sifuentes settled the fraud charges last month, with details of the settlement yet to be made public.
