The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating an investment business that is accused of misappropriating almost $4 million in funds from investors.
More and more, law enforcement is relying on social media as a major investigative tool, and the courts are going with it because most social media use is not actually private in a legal sense. While it might be possible to post whatever you like online without worrying that unintended people will see it if you are a privacy and security guru, for most people social media is an area where private thoughts are discussed semi-publicly. That's where legal trouble can start. If you are involved in criminal proceedings, your current and past social media are likely to be included in the investigation.
