Governor calls attention to investment fraud and steps we can take to protect ourselves

first_imgGovernor Jim Douglas today was joined by State Treasurer Jeb Spaulding, BISCHA Commissioner Paulette Thabault, Greg Marchildon from AARP, John Gannon from FINRA and others at a forum to educate Vermonters, especially senior citizens about how to protect against investment fraud. All Vermonters, especially senior citizens must take important steps to protect themselves and their finances from investors seeking to defraud them of their live saving and retirement investments.  That s why I was so pleased to attend and participate in today s forum, said Governor Douglas.  During economic downturns we often see a rise in predatory and exploitive practices by a few bad apples, and we must always be diligent in protecting ourselves from investment fraud.  The free and open program included lunch and a panel of experts that discussed among other important topics, the steps you should take to protect yourself and your money.  The program also included an opportunity for attendees to ask the panel questions about safe investing. I want to extend my thanks to the organizations that made this free seminar available today.  This important information could save Vermont senior citizens thousands of dollars and help them make wise investment decisions, Douglas continued.For more information about safe investing, visit is external).Source: Governor’s officelast_img
