Learn More About Investment Fraud

It’s normal to have many questions after being defrauded by a brokerage firm or broker you trusted. You may be wondering what type of fraud occurred or how you can be compensated for your loss. Here are some answers to common questions we have received over the years about how much you might recover if you sue a broker or brokerage firm for securities fraud:

What Is Investment Fraud?

Investment fraud happens when brokers and brokerage firms claim that they are acting in the best interests of their investors but, in reality, they are convincing investors to purchase investments and securities with incomplete, deficient, or misleading information or investments that are unsuitable for the investor.

Common types of investment and securities fraud include Ponzi schemes, junk bonds, structured products, and various broker misconduct like choosing unsuitable investments, providing misleading or incomplete information, excessive trading and churning.

What Is Securities Fraud?

Securities fraud refers to a wide range of illegal activities designed to defraud investors of their capital or manipulate financial markets.

If they breach this duty, either through negligence, misinformation, or outright theft, it constitutes securities fraud and is illegal under state and federal law.
