Deceptive Business Practices
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines numerous activities as securities or investment fraud, including:
- Ponzi and pyramid schemes
- Insider trading
- Mischaracterization of asset values
- Making false statements
- Failure to disclose liabilities
- Fraudulent asset financing schemes
In some cases, an investment may start out as a legitimate opportunity, but then collapse and leave investors feeling cheated. Fraudulent investments, such as pyramid schemes, operate by promising a high-return investment from the sale of a nonexistent product. Ponzi schemes are a type of securities fraud that pay existing investors with funds contributed by new investors, rather than with returns from investments.
There may be numerous parties involved in securities fraud; company officials and employees, financial advisors, investors, investment advisors or criminals. As your attorneys, we will determine who is at fault for your losses.
