Protect Yourself against Investor Fraud
You can never trust too easily. In most cases, if you feel an investment sounds too good to be true, chances are it is. Listen to your gut and do the following to help arm yourself against investor fraud:
- Put in research time: before you invest your hard-earned money, you should research the company and/or product you are considering investing in.
- Ask questions: Most scam artists are banking on your failure to research before investigating. It is up to you to do your homework — research online, do your own digging and ask plenty of questions until you are confident in your investment decision.
- Be wary of unsolicited investment offers: if you receive an unsolicited pitch to invest in a company or product, you should be especially wary. If you can't find current information about the company or product, you may want to pass.
A decision to make an investment should only be made once you have complete disclosure of accurate information. Anyone who suffers loss or added risk due to wrongful misrepresentations may be eligible to recoup damages.
