Investment fraud is a niche, complex practice area. Navigating a claim and recovering losses requires a deep understanding of state and federal laws, as well as extensive resources.

State and federal laws obligate financial advisors and stockbrokers to recommend investments that are appropriate and beneficial to clients based on each person’s individual circumstances.
Unfortunately, this is not always what happens. Some professionals in securities law use their positions of trust to take advantage of clients for a profit. They do so by running investment scams, negligently mismanaging accounts and engaging in other forms of misconduct.
If an advisor or broker engages in investment fraud, he or she could be legally responsible for a client’s subsequent financial losses. Filing a civil claim against the fraudulent individual or the supervising brokerage firm in Pennsylvania could lead to financial returns for the victim. The individual or entity accountable for fraud could owe the victim a financial award for economic losses, emotional distress, legal fees, and other damages.
Recognizing investment fraud starts with improving your knowledge of how real investment opportunities work. A financial advisor or broker should not cold call you or deliver unsolicited materials. You should be able to get as much information about an investment as you desire, along with the freedom to get an unbiased third party’s advice before investing.
If you notice any warning signs, it’s best to distance yourself from a financial professional or seek legal counsel. At Meyer Wilson, our team handles a range of investment loss claims, including those arising from:
If you have a history of investing, you may be able to trust your instincts when something is telling you a stockbroker or financial advisor is not acting within your best interests. Otherwise, you may need a professional to review your case to know if you are a victim of fraud.
Do not waste time. Pennsylvania has a strict two-year deadline for bringing fraud claims. If you miss this statute of limitations, you could give up any right you may have had to financial compensation.
