2. The issuer or any dealer or salesman designated to engage in the sale of the securities has violated any provision of this chapter, or any rule or order of the commission thereunder.
3. The sale of the securities works or would tend to work a fraud or deceit upon the purchasers thereof, or is or would be unfair or inequitable to the purchasers.
