Common Signs of an Oil and Gas Scam

An oil and gas scam refers to an investment fraud scheme where a fraudster convinces the victim to put money into an investment that either does not exist or is not a wise or reasonable investment. An oil and gas scam can sap thousands of dollars from an investor as part of a larger plan to defraud the victim, rather than to help the person make a sound investment. Certain warning signs can serve as red flags for an oil and gas scam in California.

  • Sales pitches centered on a highly publicized news story
  • Out-of-state investment opportunities
  • Guarantees of safe or profitable investments
  • Unsolicited materials about investment opportunities
  • Promoting an investment as a “limited opportunity”
  • Discouraging the client from speaking to an advisor

When in doubt about a potential opportunity to invest in the oil and gas industry, speak to a financial advisor about the situation. The person offering you the investment may try to discourage you from talking to other people, including friends and family, about the deal, but do so anyway. Speaking to a third party could prevent you from falling for a common oil and gas scam. If you have already lost money in this type of investment fraud scheme, contact an attorney from Meyer Wilson right away.
