RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia regulators are warning investors to avoid schemes involving digital currency and other threats.

The State Corporation Commission says these and other emerging schemes are considered top threats for investors.

Division Securities and Retail Franchising director Ron Thomas says the largest threat is unlicensed agents selling unregistered products. He advises investors to independently verify any investment opportunity and the background of the person and company offering it.
