Opinion: Email to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission about trying to raise money for startups. June 3, 2022.


Greetings SEC,

I want to try and raise money from accredited investors for various types of startup companies. For example, mobile apps, websites, retail stores, etc. 

Is it legal to call and email companies with the goal of finding accredited investors to invest money for risky startups? 

I will be honest with any accredited investors that offer me money. 

In my opinion, the odds of any startup making a lot of money is less than 1 percent. 

In my opinion, the odds that a startup will go out of business or earn very little money is 99.9%. For example, how many websites/apps do you use on a daily basis? What are the odds of someone creating another one that makes it into people’s daily routine? One in several million. 

People I know pay New York City law enforcement to harass and sabotage me every day. 

Anyone that even thinks about helping me is immediately contacted by New York City law enforcement and told either not to help me or asked by New York City law enforcement to help them sabotage me more. 

Currently, New York City law enforcement is editing audio of me so NYC law enforcement can lie and say that Mark Pine cursed out a bunch of Baruch College staff, professors, and students. 

If anyone tells me they want to give me money with terms I will accept I will let them know that New York City law enforcement will make their life a living hell if they give me money. That will be written into any contract I ever create for an investor. 

I will have to figure out how to cover myself legally just in case New York City law enforcement starts to torture someone who gives me money the way NYC law enforcement tortures me. 

I will have to spell everything out in advance and try to protect myself as much as possible so NYC law enforcement can’t just start torturing my investors and then the investors can easily sabotage my companies so NYC law enforcement will stop torturing them. 

I’ll let all prospective investors know that NYC law enforcement has attorneys, investors, entrepreneurs, etc., that NYC law enforcement runs scams with follow me around New York City and pretend they are with me. For example, NYC law enforcement has people follow me around holding papers that look like contracts pretending they are with me.

I would not be surprised if New York City law enforcement has people I don’t know launch lawsuits at me. People that never gave me one penny. 

I don’t care if someone offers me a billion dollars right this minute. If the terms don’t protect me I won’t do it because most people can’t take the pressure of New York City law enforcement harassing them every day and they will sell me out eventually. I can take the constant teasing and harassment every day because:

1. I have no choice.

2. I’m used to it. 

The following is the email I’m going to send to investors unless you tell me it’s illegal. Additionally, I plan on calling companies and asking for money. For example, private equity, hedge funds, venture capital, etc. 

Please provide any feedback you can and I’ll also read the SEC.GOV website. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine
