Tarpon Springs, FL, September 27, 2017 —- The SEC has filed fraud charges against four Georgia-based former brokers specifically targeting Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) investors while pretending to be affiliated with or approved by the federal government and TSP.

As a registered government vendor with SAM CAGE 7TKH1 and DUNS 080535937, F.F.E.B.A. strives to protect Federal employees from such fraudulent practices by meticulously following OPM Protocol Guidelines in our benefit training sessions.

This is the main reason why F.F.E.B.A. is continuously invited into Federal facilities to speak on site and educate Federal employees nationwide. F.F.E.B.A. is dedicated to providing accurate, up-to-date information to fully train all Federal employees, regardless of age, on all aspects of their benefits. Add to this, they provide complete transparency in all of their communications and judiciously vet all of their experts before they even consider adding them to their network of F.F.E.B.A. representatives.

To help identify potential scams in the future, the SEC provides the following tips:

Do not trust any contact information or a website provided by someone contacting you with an investment idea when that person claims to be affiliated with the government, the TSP, or government retirement plans.

According to the agency that administers the TSP, the TSP will never contact you by email, telephone, or mail asking you to provide sensitive personal information such as your account number, Social Security number, password, or PIN.

You can confirm that a seller is not affiliated with a government agency by contacting the agency directly or calling the SEC’s toll-free investor assistance line at (800) 732-0330.

Always be cautious about providing personal information to anyone you do not personally know.

If you haven’t attended one of F.F.E.B.A. sessions, they invite you to their next educational event to see for yourself the quality of information they provide and the ethics they practice at every level.

If you’ve already attended one of F.F.E.B.A. events, they would be happy to provide your HR Director with F.F.E.B.A. information and invite them to attend one of their events to experience their presentation first hand. Please don’t keep F.F.E.B.A. a secret!

For more information or if you have any questions please email F.F.E.B.A. at [email protected] or visit them at www.ffeba.com to contact them directly.
