I just spoke to my friend Brent Baker who is a former SEC attorney now practicing at Parsons Behle & Latimer. He is putting together a conference in Utah County on June 30, 2010. Attendance is free. The purpose of this event is similar to this blog – to educate people in Utah about scams that are being used in this state and to help people avoid being a victim. It should be a great event.
According to their website Fraud College is “a non-profit 501c-3 organization devoted to the promotion of the common interests of citizens around the world. It’s students and faculty cooperate in helping learn how to identify and protect against involvement with fraudulent schemes. It’s efforts are targeted to reduce the incidence of investment fraud among investors by teaching the tactics most commonly used by fraudsters and the steps every investor can take to reduce their risk.”
