Types of Investment Fraud We Can Take Action Against
Investment fraud is a serious crime that takes millions of dollars from investors each year. This type of fraud refers to the wrongful and criminal deception of an investor for financial gain. Our Ohio broker misconduct lawyers have found stockbrokers, investment advisers, and brokerage firms guilty of fraud and stealing money from unsuspecting clients.
As an investor, you may experience several forms of negligence that can lead to investment losses. Luckily, our team can help you take action against any of the following types of investment fraud:
- Broker theft
- Ponzi schemes
- Unauthorized trading
- Forging documents
- Unsuitable recommendations
- Misrepresenting facts
If you believe you have become a victim of fraud, wrongdoing or misconduct, do not hesitate to get in touch with an investment fraud lawyer from our team in Ohio.
Our securities litigation team can review your case for free and find out if you have grounds to recover investment losses. If so, we can help you take the correct steps toward bringing a lawsuit against one or multiple defendants in Ohio.
Understanding the Arbitration Process
Although many cases we work on are resolved before arbitration, some require this extra step to reach a favorable conclusion. If your case goes to arbitration, the outcome won’t be decided by a jury but by a panel of arbitrators who are appointed to your case.
During the arbitration, both parties will present their opening statements, evidence, witness testimonies, and closing arguments to the arbitrators, who will consider both sides of the case before making a decision. Once witnesses have been cross-examined and the arbitrators have made up their minds, they’ll present their decision.
The arbitration process typically takes three to five days, though some complicated cases may take weeks to resolve. No matter how complex your case is, you can rely on our Ohio investment fraud lawyers to do everything they can to ensure the arbitrator’s final decision works for you.

How to Avoid Becoming a Target of Investment Fraud
In addition to fighting on behalf of fraud victims, our team is also passionate about educating the public on how to avoid becoming a target of this crime in the future. One of the best ways to avoid investment fraud is to recognize the warning signs of a scam.
Our investment fraud attorneys in Ohio have seen nearly every type of misconduct and fraud possible. As a result, we know what investors should look for when determining if their money is in good hands. You might want to contact a lawyer if you notice any of the following signs:
- Unregistered investments
- Unlicensed agents or advisors
- Lack of information or documentation
- Overly complex investment strategies
- Unsolicited investment offers
- Communications via email
- Guaranteed returns on investment
- Pressure to invest right now
- Coercion not to talk to an unbiased third party
If someone reaches out to you with a potential investment opportunity, learn as much as you can about the situation before agreeing to invest. Get a third party’s opinion on whether the investment is sound and suitable for you. You should also request a review from an attorney or a trustworthy financial advisor.
Beware of investments that sound too good to be true; they probably are. If you fall prey to an investment scam, consult with an investment fraud attorney from our skilled team in Ohio.
