Types of Investment Fraud
Investment fraud is a serious crime that takes millions of dollars from investors each year. Investment fraud refers to the wrongful and criminal deception of an investor for financial gain. Stockbrokers, financial advisors, and brokerage firms may be guilty of committing fraud and stealing money from unsuspecting clients.
Many different scams and forms of negligence can lead to investment losses. The most harmful include:
- Financial advisor negligence
- Broker misconduct
- Oil and gas fraud
- Precious metal investment fraud
- Real estate scams
- Ponzi schemes
- Stock market manipulation
- Advance fee fraud
- Unauthorized trading
- Forging documents
- Unsuitable recommendations
- Misrepresenting facts
- Offshore investment scams
If you believe you have become a victim of any type of investment fraud, wrongdoing or misconduct, do not hesitate to contact Meyer Wilson. Our securities litigation team can review your circumstances for free to let you know if we believe you have grounds to recover investment losses. If so, we can help you take the correct steps toward bringing a lawsuit against one or multiple defendants in Ohio.
How to Avoid Becoming a Target of Investment Fraud
The lawyers at Meyer Wilson may be able to provide legal representation if you have already suffered losses due to investment fraud in Ohio. We also, however, wish to spread awareness about how to prevent becoming a target of this crime in the future.
One of the best ways to avoid investment fraud is to recognize the warning signs of a scam.
- Unregistered investments
- Unlicensed agents or advisors
- Lack of information or documentation
- Overly complex investment strategies
- Unsolicited investment offers
- Communications via email
- Guaranteed returns on investment
- Pressure to invest right now
- Coercion not to talk to an unbiased third party
If someone reaches out to you with a potential investment opportunity, learn as much as you can about the situation before agreeing to invest. Get a third party’s opinion on whether the investment is sound and suitable for you. Request a review from an attorney or a trustworthy financial advisor.
Beware of investments that sound too good to be true; they probably are. If you fall prey to an investment scam, consult with a lawyer from Meyer Wilson right away.
