Although many people assume that more experienced investors don’t
have to worry about falling for investment fraud, it’s exactly this
kind of sentiment that gets even savvy investors in trouble. Although
some inexperienced investors might falls for tricks you can spot instantly,
fraudsters are often very sophisticated, and even experienced investors
are not completely immune.
Many fraudsters are good at what they do.
Although some fraud attempts may seem bumbling to the experienced eye,
many investment scams are run by people with an intimate and sophisticated
understanding of the playing field. Underestimating the skill of fraudsters
can be a big mistake.
You let the research slide.
If you’ve been investing for a while, you may be tempted to skip
the research once in a while. Keep in mind that thorough research before
handing over your cash is one of the easiest ways to avoid financial services
You overestimate your own knowledge and skill.
If you’ve been successfully handling your own portfolio for a while,
you may feel like you know everything you need to know about fraud. Be
aware that investment fraud is always evolving, and fraudsters are still
coming up with new tricks you haven’t seen before.
You assume education is the same thing as experience.
No matter what your educational background is, it’s important to
remember that—in this case—“hands-on” experience
can be more valuable. For example, investors who have been successfully
handling their own portfolios for years and always pore over every financial
document they receive may understand more about fraud than someone who
only has an academic understanding of financial markets.
No matter how long you’ve been investing or how you choose to invest,
it is still possible to become the
victim of investment fraud. Read more about learning how to tell if your money losses resulted from
