Stockbroker misconduct can be hard to spot, and many unscrupulous brokers depend on their clients ignoring their account statements or not asking questions about what they see reported. If you’re concerned about stockbroker misconduct or investment fraud, it is important to understand your account statements.
We often talk about how to spot fraud or misconduct before you invest your money, but your account statements can also tip you off that something isn’t right even after you invest. Here are a few things to watch for:
- Transactions you did not authorize or do not understand
- Losing money when similar investments have gained
- Seeing an overall decline in your investments
- Big gains or losses when you have communicated a low risk tolerance
If you see these signs of investment misconduct on your account statements, or if you have another reason to suspect stockbroker fraud or misconduct, don’t wait until it’s too late to take action.
