    “This is the first time the Commission has sought the appointment of a receiver in connection with an ICO fraud. We will use all of our tools and remedies to protect investors from those who engage in fraudulent conduct in the emerging digital securities marketplace,” said Steven Peikin, Co-Director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division.
    Keep practicing. There will be plenty more coming, hopefully.

    That journalist sympathizing with the scammer, who apparently resides near me in Dallas, was most nauseating. What happened to asking the hard questions?

    Happens to me a lot too lately. Using a Chromebook.

    Doesn't seem to want to cooperate.

    No big deal for me. Will probably work itself out eventually.
