What Defines Securities Fraud in Texas?
Investment losses happen all the time, and in most cases, they’re not due to any type of fraud or illegal activity. Not even those most familiar with the market, such as broker dealers, can predict the future. But securities fraud does still occur within the securities industry. You may instinctively begin to suspect securities fraud if you sustain puzzling losses that just don’t sit right with you.
When a broker or brokerage firm intentionally deceives you into making an investment based on bogus information that results in investment losses, they’re committing securities fraud. Brokers owe you a fiduciary duty to look out for your best interests when managing your investments, and a breach of fiduciary duty on their part can lead to serious consequences.
If you suspect that you may be a victim of broker misconduct, then you should reach out to a securities fraud attorney at Erez Law, at your earliest convenience to discuss your case. You should immediately report any suspected instances of fraud to the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) or FINRA.
