To the and Exchange Commission,

I have been a victim of dishonest brokers and financial advisers who
had a stake in stocks and were merely trying to run up the price so
they could make a quick buck then sell.  Unfortunately, in today's
world, the only way to keep these guys honest and protect the average
older American who is trying to invest so he doesn't become a burden to
his family or society is to regulate.  It's In your power to offer this
protection and you certainly should do it.  Is that what the SEC is
supposed to do, protect us from this sort of abuse?


Mr. Richard Vanek
