Subject: SEC Division of Enforcement Confirmation Reply

     Dear Sir or Madam:
     Thank you for your recent e-mail to the group electronic mailbox of 
     the Division of Enforcement at the United States Securities and 
     Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C.  We appreciate your taking the 
     time to write to us.  This automated response confirms that the 
     Division of Enforcement has received your e-mail.
     We are always interested in hearing from members of the public, and 
     you may be assured that the matter you have raised is being given 
     careful consideration in view of the Commission's overall enforcement 
     responsibilities under the federal securities laws.  It is, however, 
     the Commission's policy to conduct its inquiries on a confidential 
     basis -- so this may be the only response that you receive. If your 
     complaint is more in the nature of a consumer complaint (such as a 
     dispute with your broker or a problem with your brokerage or 
     retirement account), you should contact our Office of Investor 
     Education and Assistance -- they may be able to help you.  You may 
     reach the Office of Investor Education and Assistance via 
     telephone at 202-942-7040 or via email at <>. 
     The Commission conducts its investigations on a confidential basis to 
     preserve the integrity of its investigative process as well as to 
     protect persons against whom unfounded charges may be made or against 
     whom the Commission determines that enforcement action is not necessary

     or appropriate.  Subject to the provisions of the Freedom of 
     Information Act, we cannot disclose to you any information which we may

     gather and we cannot confirm to you the existence or non-existence of 
     an investigation, unless made a matter of public record in proceedings 
     brought before the Commission or in the courts.
     If you are unsure where you should direct your inquiry or you want to 
     learn more about how the SEC handles inquiries and complaints, please 
     visit the SEC Complaint Center at
     Should you have any additional information or questions pertaining to 
     this matter, please feel free to communicate directly with the 
     undersigned at 450 Fifth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 
     20549-0908 or via e-mail at <>. 
     We appreciate your interest in the work of the Commission and its 
     Division of Enforcement.  
     Very truly yours,
     John Reed Stark
     Chief, Office of Internet Enforcement 
     United States Securities & Exchange Commission
