Subject: File Number S7-07-18: Stop financial advisers from sapping Americans' retirement savings

Securities and Exchange Commission

To the and Exchange Commission,

Although you do not regulate realtors, what should have been a realtor's fiduciary obligations were ignored by that realtor, and could have cost me tens of thousands of dollars, except for the intervention of a sharp-eyed lawyer.  I urge you to strengthen rules which ensure a required fidiciary obligation on all who handle investments and/or provide inmvestment advice.

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of mind about their financial security.


Mr. Robert Maurer
