VCA Securities LP  (formerly Bluffview Securities) entered into a Letter of Acceptance Waiver and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to resolve allegations that the firm failed to establish, maintain and enforce an adequate supervisory system and adequate written supervisory procedures designed to review and monitor the transmittal of funds from customer accounts to third-party accounts.

According to FINRA, between January 2012 and June 2014, processed two unauthorized Letters of Authorization (LOAs) sent from a cyber-hacker of a customer’s email account resulting in over $250,000 in wire transfers from a VCA account to an unauthorized third party bank account.
