Actions You Can Take to Avoid Securities Fraud and Ponzi Schemes

Unfortunately, many people don’t learn how to avoid securities fraud until it’s too late. To help you protect yourself and your cash, our securities fraud lawyers want to offer these simple actions you can take to spot fraud before you hand over your cash:

  • Get everything in writing and keep a copy for yourself.
  • Compare what you get in writing to what you were told.
  • Check out the company or broker’s history through your federal and state regulators.
  • Ask the person promoting the investment if he or she is paid to do so.
  • Ask for a physical address and schedule a face-to-face meeting at the office.
  • Do your own research into the history and performance of the investment itself.

Although it may seem complicated, what a lot of this really boils down to is just verifying the information you hear and keeping great records.
