Ohio Ponzi Scheme Lawyer

A Ponzi scheme is a fake investment opportunity orchestrated by a scammer to deceive investors. In a Ponzi scheme, the operator uses funds from new investors to pay existing investors. The cycle will continue until the scheme ultimately collapses, either when the scammer fails to find new investors or when too many investors request to cash out at the same time.

How to Spot a Ponzi Scheme in Ohio

If you are new to investing, you could be at a greater risk of falling for a Ponzi or pyramid scheme. You may not know what “normal” investing looks like, or what to look for when trying to avoid scammers. Even as a seasoned investor, however, you could fall into a trap a sophisticated criminal sets. Keep an eye out for common red flags that signal a Ponzi scheme or similar type of fraud is in the works.

  • Pressure to join immediately
  • Failure to disclose adequate information
  • Refusal to give more details about the investment
  • Secret or excessively complex investment strategies
  • Unsolicited invitations to join an investment
  • Forged investment documents
  • Promises to yield consistent high returns
  • An investment that is not registered with the SEC
  • An opportunity from an unlicensed advisor

Be wary of a new investment opportunity in Ohio. Do not agree to invest until you have thoroughly researched the advisor, broker or company in charge of organizing the investment. Look for licenses, credentials, referrals and overall professionalism. If you are not sure whether an opportunity is real or part of a Ponzi scheme, take what information you know about the investment to a trusted third-party financial advisor for counsel on how to proceed.

Does Someone Owe You Compensation?

If you lost money in a Ponzi scheme, the orchestrator could be financially indebted to you. Proving fraud may take help from an attorney, but doing so could result in payment for your economic and non-economic damages. The law may entitle you to recover the costs of what you lost in the false investment, plus additional interest or penalty payments, punitive damages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Learn the true value of your claim during a consultation with a lawyer from Meyer Wilson.
