If you are an investor, you could be accused of fraud based on actions such as accounting fraud within your own company’s books or your individual account practices, creating a Ponzi scheme, misstating financial statements, or other actions and inactions that are fraudulent.
Other issues include:
- High-yield investment fraud
- Foreign currency fraud
- Pyramid schemes
- Hedge fund fraud
- Advanced fee schemes
- Late day trading
Avoid Becoming A Victim
If you are an investor, watch out for warning signs such as offers that sound too good to be true, unsolicited investment offers, high-pressure sales, and brokers and sellers asking for personal information over the phone or through the internet such as your Social Security number or credit card information.
