FINRA, SEC to host investment fraud workshop in Concord

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Securities and Exchange Commission and other agencies will be in Concord from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday hosting a workshop on how to spot investment fraud when con artists call.

Held at the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord, the event will tell people -- primarily age 55 and older -- the tactics current scams are using and ways to avoid them. FINRA has found that victims of investment fraud are typically "financially knowledgeable, highly educated and self-reliant when it comes to investment decisions," according to the agency.

More than 100 people have signed up to attend so far. Register for the free event by calling (866) 862-0110 or visiting

Considering that not one financial executive has faced a single criminal charge pertaining to the financial crisis, this looks like a pathetic dog-and-pony show by two agencies that have covered up the true causes of the crash.
