Is Churning a Type of Investment Fraud?

You may need to hire a lawyer if an advisor or broker is churning your account because this is a form of investment fraud. Churning is the intentional buying and selling of securities excessively to create a profit for the broker. Stockbrokers receive commissions and often additional fees every time they buy and sell securities on an investor’s account. Criminal brokers may excessively trade for the commissions without any regard for the best interests of the investor.

Churning could lead to the loss of significant funds while a criminal stockbroker profits on the trades. If you suspect a broker of committing investment fraud in the form of churning, contact an attorney right away. The sooner you involve a lawyer, the sooner you will have a professional safeguarding your rights. If you are unsure whether you are a victim of churning, discuss your situation with a lawyer who can tell you the common signs of churning.
