How to Recover Losses
Dozens of types of investment fraud pervade the market in California. Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, insider trading, fraudulent transfers, trading fraud, churning, broker misconduct, oil and gas scams, real estate fraud andsecurities fraud are some common examples. If you fell victim to one of these fraud schemes and sustained significant losses, a civil claim could restore the money a fraudster took. Filing a civil claim against an individual or corporation in California could lead to the defendant paying for your economic and non-economic damages.
