be happy you are not involved. The SEC investigations span years, and many of the nickel dime buyers are tapped on the shoulders by agents long after the headlines disappear. I watched a large group that got bagged just recently who operated roughly from 96 till 2004. With court cost and fines they are penniless,homeless and cannot get any job. They were execs, family members and "friends".When there names are mentioned, no one even acknowledges they know them. A more example is Madoff, the courts are still grinding up and trashing the rest of his family and friends one by one as they work each case. Look at Stanfords daughter who just got evicted from her condo which was repossessed by the courts after Stanford gave it to her as a gift.
