Investment fraud steals millions of dollars from unsuspecting investors every year. Scammers and hackers use fraud, deceit, and coercion to convince investors to give them money. Then, they steal the money outright or otherwise use it unsuitably. Investors in Michigan often do not realize they have become targets of fraud until they have already lost a substantial amount.

Investment fraud can refer to any action or failure to act a financial advisor or stockbroker makes with the intent to defraud the investor. Fraud can lead to profits for the advisor or broker while the investor loses money. The possible types of investment fraud schemes are almost endless, but we see certain types of scams more often than others in Michigan at our investor claim law firm.
To prove the existence of investment fraud, your lawyer will need to establish through a preponderance of evidence that the investor had control of your account at the time of the incident, intentionally breached a duty of care owed to you, caused your damages and that you suffered economic losses because of the breach. Scienter, or intent, is an important element of proof an attorney from Meyer Wilson may be able to help you prove before a judge and jury.
Recovering losses often requires filing a civil claim against the individual or entity responsible for defrauding you. Michigan’s civil justice system allows investment fraud victims to bring civil lawsuits demanding compensation for their losses. The financial advisor, stockbroker or corporation could be legally responsible for the fraud scheme that stole your money. If so, the defendant could owe you a financial recovery.
The amount you could earn through a civil claim to recover losses from investment fraud depends on how much money you lost, as well as several other factors unique to your case. During a free consultation at Meyer Wilson, we can review your case and accurately evaluate its value.
