Will the citizens of Shady Acres ever escape the clutches of financial fraudsters?
Shady Acres is an interactive, online game from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Investor Education Foundation. The denizens of Shady Acres apparently have disposable income burning holes in their pockets and could be easy pickings for the resident con artist, Connor. Connor is also something of a Fagan, teaching others the art of the con. Connor and his minions have a worthy adversary, however: Fiona, the Fraud Fighting Agency's lead agent (that's her on the left).
