FINRA Alerts Firms to Phishing Email Using “gateway-finra.org” Domain Name

FINRA warned member firms of an ongoing phishing campaign that involves fraudulent emails purporting to be from FINRA and using the domain name “@gateway-finra.org.” The email asks the recipient to click a link to “view request” and provide information to “complete” that request, noting that “late submission may attract penalties.” FINRA recommends that anyone who clicked on any link or image in the email immediately notify the appropriate individuals in their firm of the incident. See Regulatory Notice 21-20 for additional information and a sample fraudulent email.
