As you've made a payment to Binance this year, we wanted to let you know that we're stopping payments made by credit/debit card to them until further notice. This is to help keep your money safe. For further info, please search FCA Binance online. We're sorry for any disruption this may cause you.

The bank’s customer service team is directing a slew of disgruntled Binance users to the website of the Financial Conduct Authority.

On June 26, the FCA issued a consumer warning about Binance Markets Limited not being allowed to conduct any regulated activity in the country.

However, the exchange claimed that the FCA notice wouldn’t affect its services in the U.K. since BML is a separate entity.    

Apart from the U.K., Binance is facing intense regulatory scrutiny in Canada, Thailand, the Cayman Islands, Japan, and other jurisdictions.
