FINRA Alert: Beware of Fake FINRA Domain and Potential Malware

FINRA Alert: Beware of Fake FINRA Domain and Potential Malware, featured by top securities fraud attorneys, The White Law Group

FINRA warns member firms of imposter website, www.finnra.org (please notice the extra “n” in the domain name).

According to a regulatory notice posted by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator  is warning member firms of a new imposter website www.finnra.org (please notice the extra “n” in the domain name). One portion of the fake FINRA website contains a link to a registration site that is not legitimate, according to the alert.

FINRA warns that criminals could use the domain to send fake emails including those with embedded phishing links or attachments containing dangerous malware. The domain of “finnra.org” is not connected to FINRA in any way and anyone should delete all emails originating from this domain name.

Fortunately, FINRA has requested that the Internet domain registrar suspend services for “finnra.org”, but as of this writing, the domain is still active. FINRA recommends  verifying the trustworthiness of any suspicious email prior to responding to it, opening any attachments or clicking on any embedded links.

This information is publicly available on FIRNA’s legitimate website, www.finra.org and provided to you by The White Law Group. For a free consultation with a securities attorney, please call the offices at (888)637-5510.
