Recovering from fraud can be traumatic and painful. You spent your life investing your money so it would grow for your future.

Unfortunately, the legal framework for handling fraudulent securities is complicated.

At Erez Law, PLLC, we want to help you understand securities fraud and how you can take action to report it.

What Is Securities Fraud?

Securities fraud is more commonly known as stock or investment fraud. It is a form of white-collar crime that generally involves misrepresenting information to investors. Thus, investors do not have correct or adequate information to make informed decisions.

Those who commit securities fraud can be individuals like stockbrokers or large-scale organizations like brokerage firms, corporations, or investment banks.

Common Types of Securities Fraud Violations

“Securities fraud” is a phrase that covers a range of illegal activities. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, some of the most common types of securities fraud violations include:

  • Ponzi and pyramid schemes
  • High-yield investment fraud
  • Hedge-fund fraud
  • Advance-fee plans
  • “Pump and dump” plans
  • Late day trading
  • Foreign currency fraud
  • Broker embezzlement
