Former Freddie Mac chairman and CEO Richard Syron recently received a 'Wells Notice' from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which means the agency is considering filing civil charges against him related to his management of company.

Syron, who during his long career in banking and mortgages is also a past president of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, is the third Freddie Mac official over the past month to receive a Wells Notice from the agency.
