Montana Commissioner Releases New Documentary on Investment Fraud

As part of the state's efforts to help Montanans avoid investment fraud, the Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance has teamed up with AARP Montana to produce a new documentary: "Gold Diggers, Investment Fraud in the Treasure State."

The film, which is scheduled to air on TVMT in November, "tells the shocking stories of two of Montana's most infamous investment schemes" - the Arthur Heffelfinger case in Helena and the Anne Marie Schlenker case in Bozeman. Together the two schemes defrauded Montana investors out of more than $3 million.

The Commissioner's office hopes the film will help investors recognize the warning signs of investment fraud and thereby avoid becoming victims themselves.

"Education is the silver bullet when it comes to fighting fraud," said Commissioner Monica J. Lindeen. "The more Montanans know about their rights and where they can turn for help, the better they can protect themselves from modern day gold diggers."

Actor Bill Pullman narrates the film, which includes interviews with victims of investment fraud, industry experts, investor advocates, securities arbitration attorneys, prosecutors, and regulators. Special screenings will take place from Oct. 10 through Oct. 13. For more information, click here.
