The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority is alerting broker-dealers to phishing campaigns — one ongoing and another new — that involve fraudulent emails.
On April 25, FINRA warned of a scam purporting to be from FINRA and using the domain name “@claims-finra.org.”
“The domain of ‘claims-finra.org’ is not connected to FINRA and firms should delete all emails originating from this domain name,” FINRA told broker-dealers.
The email states:
Please find the attached Deficiency letter. This notice is from the FINRA risk analysis department following a directive from SEC. As instructed in the letter, I will keep this request open until Wednesday 04/27/22.
