"Exclusive" and "Private" Offers: How to Spot a Scam

Private and Exclusive Investment Offers Usually Indicate a Scam

Have you been offered a “private” or “exclusive” investment by your adviser? Did you know that these types of offers are almost always investment scams? If your adviser or broker offers you an “exclusive” or “secret” investment opportunity that isn’t supervised by his or her company, then there’s a good chance that you’re being taken for a ride.

Here are a few signs that your adviser’s supposedly “exclusive” offer may be a scam:

  • You meet outside of his or her office.
  • You make out the check directly to your adviser.
  • Documents are not on company letterhead or are through a different company.
  • Your adviser’s employer doesn’t know about the opportunity.
