FCA issues warning over fake emails
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has warned about fake emails purporting to be sent from the City regulator.

In a statement the FCA said that the emails appear to be sent from and has urged recipients to delete the email without opening.

Another email entitled ‘FCA Regulation 2017’ which purports to be from is also fake, the FCA said. Recipients should also delete this email without opening.

On its agenda this year the FCA is tasked with conducting its review into competition in the mortgage sector, which will investigate whether tools used by customers throughout the mortgage customer are supporting effective decisions. It will also review whether commercial arrangements between stakeholders are impacting the mortgage journey to the detriment of consumers.

The FCA is intending to publish an interim report by the summer this year, which will include its analysis and preliminary conclusions. Interested parties have until 12 January 2017 to submit comments by emailing
