Bafin issues cease and desist order against Fronter Decsision

BaFin cease-and-desist order against unauthorized payment processor Fronter Decision

Fronter Decision GmbH, registered in Offenbach, Germany, was entered into the commercial register in April 2019. The Ukrainian Nikitin Oleksiy was appointed as the sole managing director.

BaFin issued a cease-and-desist order against the company in November 2020, which is now final.
