NEW YORK, Oct. 13 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network — Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court
for the Southern District of New York, on behalf of all persons who purchased
the common stock of Refco, Inc. (“Refco” or the “Company”) (NYSE: RFX) between
August 11, 2005 and October 7, 2005, inclusive, (the “Class Period”) against
defendants Refco and certain officers of the Company.

The case name is Weiss v. Refco, Inc., et al. A copy of the complaint
filed in this action is available from the Court, or can be viewed on the Wolf
Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP website at

The complaint alleges that defendants violated the federal securities laws
by issuing materially false and misleading statements throughout the Class
Period that had the effect of artificially inflating the market price of the
Company’s securities.

The complaint further alleges that throughout the Class Period, Refco
represented to the investment community that it was a highly-successful
financial services company, while concealing: (1) that it lacked adequate
internal controls; and (2) the Company’s rosy financial statements from fiscal
2002 to the first quarter of 2006 were unreliable; and (3) that the Company’s
financial projections were irresponsible considering the knowledge defendants
possessed of the Company’s actual financial situation.

If you purchased Refco common stock during the Class Period, you may
request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff by December 12, 2005. A
lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class
members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff,
the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the
claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately
represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members
may together serve as “lead plaintiff.” Your ability to share in any recovery
is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead
plaintiff. You may retain Wolf Haldenstein, or other counsel of your choice,
to serve as your counsel in this action.
