Initiatives Spanning Fraud in Finance, Investments, Accounting and other Financials.

INITIATIVE #1: Financial PreCheck

TARGET: Fraudulent & Disreputable Financial Professionals

DESCRIPTION: Advancements in technology and communications have made fraudulently impersonating authentic financial professionals less detectable than ever. Also, financial professionals who have professional records mired with links to fraudulent activity, long histories of misconduct and disciplinary actions continue to evade detection and operate unimpeded. Both present an ongoing danger to investors being continuously lured into fraudulent investments.

SOLUTION: The Financial PreCheck Challenge,

GOALS: Separate authentic and reputable financial professionals from the frauds; Reward and spotlight those who have maintained clean professional records, cleared from links to fraud or professional misconduct.

-Invite all regional Financial Professionals to volunteer to submit to a fraud detection investigation to discard those with links to fraud.
-Award special recognition to those with upstanding professional records.
-Subject them to periodic re-investigations, establish code of conduct, monitor and discard violators.
-Maintain results in free, easy to use, searchable public directory.
-Engage with public via media campaign to distinguish and spotlight those select professionals accepted.
