Slanderous Email to IIUSA Members about Account Executive

Earlier this week, a slanderous and offensive e-mail was sent out to many in the EB-5 community appearing to be from one of Todd Associates’ Account Executives, David Souders, who currently serves on the Invest in the USA (IIUSA) Board of Directors. The sender’s URL and email address were created to mimic that of Mr. Souders and was not from him.

As stated by IIUSA Executive Director Peter Joseph, Mr. Souders has a record of proactively reporting potential fraud to appropriate authorities, and they suspect this could be a retaliation for such actions. IIUSA is investigating the source of the hack and considering what further action can and should be taken.

If you have received and opened this e-mail, we apologize for the inconvenience. We were offended by the language as well. There is no room for this type of unethical behavior.
