In this issue, we invite people in the Charlotte/Concord area to attend an investment fraud seminar at the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord Hotel on June 7 from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The event is free and dinner is included, but registration is required. See the newsletter for registration details. We also report on a bill pending in the U.S. House of Representatives that would require investment advisers to become members of a self-regulating organization (SRO). The bill has advisers and their clients alike concerned because, if enacted, the bill would impose a new layer of regulation on advisers and require them to fund the SRO’s activities through membership fees. We also include an investor alert about “crowdfunding” and explain how it works and things investors should be wary of when considering a crowdfunded investment opportunity. We are also pleased to report that the Investor Education Program has now successfully completed its goal of providing an educational presentation in all 100 of North Carolina’s counties. You will have to read the newsletter to see which county pushed us over the top! With June 15th being World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, we provide information for people to use to report suspected elder abuse. We also include an investor alert from FINRA concerning nutraceutical stock scams and one from the SEC concerning ways seniors can protect themselves from scams when using social media. We include the usual Calendar of Upcoming Events and hope you will join us when we come to a location near you. We also provide updates on current pending criminal cases as well as the latest news from other regulators.
