We are a non-profit corporation that has been protecting investors for 50 years. We work to restore investors’ cash and securities when their brokerage firm fails. SIPC has recovered billions of dollars for investors.
SIPC recently has become aware of e-mails pretending to be from SIPC. These e-mails inform recipients that SIPC has attempted to contact them several times by e-mail in the past week and advise that an urgent response is required.
The e-mails contain fake addresses of email@example.com and www.sipcorp.org and a telephone number of (202)798-8359 that is not SIPC’s. The e-mails may contain an attachment. The e-mails are not from SIPC and are a hoax.
Avoid clicking links, downloading attachments, or replying to the e-mails.
For more information, please contact SIPC at 202-371-8300 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that SIPC’s e-mail address is www.sipc.org and that only e-mails sent from a sender at “@sipc.org” are legitimate.
