Dear Sir/Madam:

I’m writing to support the continuation of receiving paper statements in the mail from companies in which I invest. There are several reasons why I support paper statements, including:

Digital may seem more convenient for the SEC, but risking identity theft is not worth it to me. This rule will make my personal information available through email. I do not support it because I don’t want to start getting "phishing" attacks from scam artists posing as legitimate investment company emails. I prefer to look at my mutual fund reports in print because it’s easier for me to study and retain the information. I do not support the new Rule 30e-3. I think it’s easier to look at the reports in print and I have previously expressed this to the SEC. I don’t appreciate that the SEC is ignoring the majority of comments, which support the way reports are sent now. 
As my investment portfolio grows, having paper statements as part of my continuing records is imperative in the case of unexpected tragedy for my surviging family members. I need the paper statements filed in a location to which they’d have easy access rather than delaying account settlements/closures with internet emails and passwords.

Please do let me know if you have further questions or require clarification to my comments.

Kind regards,
Brad
