It has recently come to the Commission's attention that a person using various aliases including James Arthur Riise and Douglas R. Baker has been claiming to be licensed by the Commission to engage in business as a loan broker. The Commission can confirm that these claims are false and are part of a scheme designed to commit fraud.
By way of confirmation, loan broking services are not regulated by the Commission. The Commission would like to advise anyone approached by individuals claiming to be licensed by it for the provision of such services to check the Commission's website where lists of all firms regulated by the Commission are maintained. If you think you have been approached by a fraudulent firm please contact [email protected].
