To the and Exchange Commission,

I was given very bad financial investment advice in 1986 when I became
a widow.  I lost thousands of dollars and ended up losing my home. The
investment advisor was never prosecuted; but he still received his
commissions.  I was lucky I had a strong constitution and recovered
somewhat.  Please protect us from dishonest investors and companies
that take advantage of us.

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.


Ms. Lynn Garner
