Suspicious Internet Solicitation - Caution when dealing with Affluential Group Corp.
Monday, February 24, 2014
Montréal – The Autorité des marchés financiers (the "AMF") is warning Québec consumers about solicitations made through on-line ads encouraging them to purchase investment products related to Affluential Group Corp.
Neither Affluential Group Corp. nor its representatives or directors, Ali Haida Tarafdar and Sean Pugliese, are registered with the AMF, and are therefore not authorized to solicit Québec consumers for investment purposes.
Advertisements posted on classified ad websites target consumers with $20,000 to $25,000 to invest, and promise investment returns of 12% to 25% within six months.
To ensure compliance with the law and protect the public, the AMF is asking the Bureau de décision et de révision (the "Bureau") for orders to cease the solicitation, remove the ads and close Affluential Group Corp.'s website. The AMF is also asking the Bureau to impose administrative penalties on the firm and its two officers, Ali Haida Tarafdar and Sean Pugliese.
