VCA Securities entered into a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). According to the AWC, from January 2012 through June 2014, VCA failed to establish, maintain and enforce an adequate supervisory system and adequate written supervisory control procedures designed to review and monitor the transmittals of funds from customer accounts to third-party accounts. Because of this, VCA processed two unauthorized Letters of Authorization sent from a cyber-hacker of a customer’s email account resulting in $250,500 in wire transfers from a customer account to an unauthorized third-party bank account. This is against securities rules and regulations. The firm was fined $35,000 and censured for this conduct.
