Such activities require a Secondary License from the Commission and the securities or investment product should likewise be registered with SEC before they can be offered or sold to the public under Sections 8 and 12 of the Securities Regulation Code (SRC).

 

Any offerings which involves investment of money in common enterprise with the expectation of profits primarily from the efforts of others constitute investment contract. Such offering of investment contract may constitute a form of INVESTMENT SCAM if investors are not created by the success of the underlying business but instead are derived from the contribution of others. While the scheme may involve sale of products, the same may still constitute an INVESTMENT SCAM if the sale of the products is not the primary focus of the scheme.  In such a case, the sale of the products is just being used in order to make INVESTMENT SCAM appear to be legal.

 

Thus, the public is hereby WARNED of the following indication of a potential INVESTMENT SCAM:

 

  1. Unrealistic high returns on investment;
  2. Underlying activity is not explained well or is too complicated to understand;
  3. Promoters discourage investor from cashing out his investment and encourages the rolling over of the investment and/or infusing more money.

 

Consequently, those who act as salesmen, brokers, dealers or agents of a company in selling or convincing people to invest in the investment scheme described as a potential INVESTMENT SCAM including solicitations or recruitment through the internet may likewise be prosecuted and held criminally liable under Section 28 of the Securities Regulation Code and penalized with a maximum fine of Five Million pesos (P5,000,000.00) or penalty of Twenty One (21) years imprisonment or both pursuant to Section 73 of the SRC.

 

Accordingly, those who invite or recruit other people to join or invest in this kind of venture or offer contracts or securities to the public may be held liable or accordingly sanctioned or penalized in accordance with the Supreme Court decision in the case of SEC vs. Oudine Santos (G.R. No. 195542, March 19, 2014).

 

Furthermore, the names of all those involved will be reported to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) so that the appropriate penalties and/or taxes be correspondingly assessed.

 

In view thereof, the public is hereby ADVISED to exercise caution before investing in these kinds of activities and to take the necessary precaution in dealing with BUILDING OUR SUCCESS STORIES NETWORK INC. or its representatives.
