According to Orlando Sentinel, law enforcement authorities gathered this month in Orlando for a summit focused on fraud, identity theft, and other types of financial schemes.
Glenn Stuart Gordon, associate regional director of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Miami office, was cited by Orlando Sentinel saying that retirees with savings, wealthy individuals, and immigrants who form a significant part of Florida’s population are prone to this type of infractions.
Gordon said Ponzi schemes and a lot of “affinity” scams - where fraudsters prey on particular ethnic or religious groups - are very common in Florida. Orlando Sentinel also cites U.S. Attorney Robert O’Neill, stating that the scams are getting more and more sophisticated, especially when discussing investor fraud cases.
