SEC Tarlac teaches studes on how to spot scams

CONCEPCION, Tarlac (Nov. 20, 2023) — The Securities and Exchange Commission – Tarlac Extension Office (SEC-TEO) kickstarted their investor education here.

Some 100 students of Concepcion Holy Cross College were taught financial literacy against illegal investment schemes.

SEC-TEO Director Richard Laus said that their investor education campaign will help young people discern legitimate businesses from illegal investment schemes like the pyramid and Ponzi schemes.

“The SEC is encouraging the public through our investor education campaigns to be vigilant in entertaining any investment opportunity by verifying and checking the legitimacy of these investments with the Commission, and I also urge everyone to consider the risks before investing,” Laus said.

The SEC-TEO’s education campaign is in line with the commission’s celebration of Investor Protection Week, and carries the theme, “From Struggling to SECure: Entering your Financial Freedom Era through Smart and Sustainable Investments”.
