Reason for warning: The FMA has been made aware of New Zealand residents receiving an email purportedly from the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). These emails include a link for the recipient to complete a compliance due diligence questionnaire.

The FCA has published an alert on its website noting that these emails are being sent from a cloned email address.
