To all SURS SMP Members:
SURS previously received notice that a company called Compass Investors, LLC has been sending email solicitations to our SURS Self-Managed Plan (SMP) members through the following email addresses:
Please be advised that SURS does not do business with this company, SURS is not affiliated with this company and SURS does not recommend or endorse this company.
Based on the numerous complaints we received from members regarding these solicitations, in 2017 we served two cease and desist letters upon this company in an effort to stop what we believe to be a direct attempt to confuse our SMP members and a trademark violation. We also reported this situation to the appropriate legal and regulatory authorities. Since reporting this to the authorities, Compass Investors added disclaimer language to their emails indicating they are not affiliated with SURS, Fidelity or TIAA and removed the “surs” reference in their email address.
If you continue to receive unwanted emails from Compass Investors, LLC we recommend you unsubscribe from their mailing list to cease further communications.
