How Can I Keep My Money Safe?

I really want to invest, but I’m afraid brokers will take advantage of my lack of experience. How can I keep my money safe and avoid getting mixed up in an investment scam?

It can be difficult, especially for an inexperienced investor, to tell if an investment opportunity is legitimate or just a scam. However, there are a few “red flags” that almost always point to potential investment fraud:

  • Pressure to invest right away.
  • Promises of high returns with little or no risk.
  • Difficulty obtaining anything “in writing.”

Because most investment fraud cases end up in arbitration, this field of law is extremely different from most types of court cases.
