That has to be a fascinating profession. Were you directly involved in fraud - things like Boiler Rooms, Ponzi Schemes and Bernie Madoff? Any good investment tips? I won't tell anybody.
So coming to Florida....come on down! Only one suggestion I might offer. Unless you're planning to buy a condo, I'd check with the State of Florida. They used to have a map and stats on the best and worst areas for sink holes.
The property my house is on required an insurance claim and concrete injection totalling a little over $100,000 to remedy for sink hole depressions below.
Awesome, they make most of my favorite games! When's the next Splinter Cell come out, and can it please be a prequel with michael ironside voicing him again?
I don't work in those areas that investigates the firms and reps. I work in our registration and disclsure area. Not as exciting as working in our investigation departments or district offices but I see a lot of interesting criminal court documents. All reps have to be fingerprinted so our department reviews any fingerprints that come back with a hit. We have to review court documents for any charges within 10 years to determine reportability and disqualification requirements.
My department is reponsible for reviewing and analyzying any reportable matter, customer complaint, financial (bankruptcy/judgments/liens), regulatory actions by states and other agencies. We then grant them approval to work or not depending on our guidelines.
Bernie Madoff didn't come under our jurisdiction, he had an investment advisor firm (IA) which is different than your brokerage and securities firms. The SEC and states handle the IA firms. IA's are somewhat relatively new so there is still a lot of adjusting and politics going on with that.
Don't have any really good investment tips except if it sounds to good to be true then it is.
However, if anyone does deal with any broker or agent you can go to one our websites at brokercheck.finra.org/ and check out their employment history, certifications as well as any customer complaint, regulatory actions, criminal history etc.
Thanks for the tip on Florida and the sink holes. We are lookging at Pensacola. I lived there from 1988-1991 when I went to the University of West Florida. Love the beaches and still have lots of friends there.
