To the and Exchange Commission,

My husband and I work hard for our money. The smart thing to do is to
invest for our retirement but finding a trustworthy financial advisor
is a scary prospect. What if they do not have our best interests at
heart but rather their own? I do not want to find I have fallen for a
scam or lost everything in a bad investment deal because they were
legally allowed to lie to me about the products they offer.

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.


Mrs. Meredith Soddy
