The FCA has sent out a warning over fake emails from scammers pretending to be the regulator.
In a note on its website, the FCA said that it had identified three separate emails using three separate fake FCA email addresses which had been sent not by the regulator, but by other parties.
The regulator advises anyone who received the emails to delete them without reading.
The note reads: “We are aware that an email has been sent which appears to be from firstname.lastname@example.org. This email was not sent by the FCA and recipients should delete the email without opening.
