To the and Exchange Commission,

I want to add my comments concerning the above referenced file. There
are already too many thieves using schemes to entrap Americans, both
old and young. I read about athletes losing large sums of money time
and again to "trusted " agents, and yet Congress and you fail
to plug the loopholes to protect both old and young from the
unscrupulous actions of investment advisors.

Don't lose this opportunity to at least give those who are victims a
stronger platform when they seek to rectify the misdeeds they have

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.
