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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
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 www.sec.gov/complaint.shtml.
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 <email@example.com>.
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
