Procedure for submitting a complaint to the Board
The Board does not have jurisdiction over contractual disputes involving registrants. Law prohibits us from giving you legal advice, legal opinion, or action as a 'private' attorney. If you have suffered or may suffer civil wrongs such as significant monetary loss, you may want to contact private counsel to discuss your legal civil rights and remedies.
