    CALGARY, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) has
issued an interim cease trade order against Lethbridge businessman Robert
Michael Smylski and Smylski Consulting Services Ltd. (operating as Money
Solutions) regarding an alleged illegal trading and distributions of
securities.
    The ASC interim cease trade order is in effect for 15 days and prohibits
Smylski and Smylski Consulting Services from trading in any securities and
from using Alberta securities laws exemptions. An ASC panel issued the interim
cease trade order after hearing evidence from ASC staff that Smylski and
Smylski Consulting Services engaged in the sale of securities to Alberta
investors without registration and without a prospectus or an appropriate
exemption.
    An ASC panel will consider whether or not to extend the interim order at
9 a.m., March 6, 2009 in the ASC Hearing Room on the 6th Floor, 300 - 5th
Avenue, Calgary, Alberta.

outlining the allegations can be found at www.albertasecurities.com.

province's securities laws. It is entrusted to foster a fair and efficient
capital market in Alberta and to protect investors. As a member of the
