Invest only in companies and funds duly licensed and accredited by SEC. Do not fall for investment scams and get rich quick schemes.
In the news lately are dubious ‘investment’ firms which solicit money from the public for investments, which later on turns-out to be scams and Ponzi schemes. In order to better guide the Filipinos who plans to invest, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has released an official list of accredited companies available to the public for investment-purposes.
The companies on this list of SEC are LEGIT!
Be careful in choosing where you will put your money on. If the company you are planning to invest in is NOT listed below, it could be a scam. Be cautious and seek SEC’s assistance as necessary at these contact / telephone numbers (02) 818-6337 or (02) 818-6047 or email SEC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
