The United States Security Exchange Commission (SEC) was created in 1934 to protect investors and prevent securities fraud. The primary purpose and function of the SEC is to enforce the securities laws of the United States. The securities laws in the United States are built on a foundation of criminal fraud. Securities fraud includes deceptive practices to investors, stock manipulation, embezzlement by stock brokers, insider trading, and fraudulent statements to corporate auditors.
