Sign You May Be a Victim of Securities Fraud
The best way to determine if you are a victim of securities fraud is to speak with an experienced securities fraud lawyer.
However, there are some common signs that may indicate you have been defrauded:
- Your broker-dealer, financial advisor or investment professional reports results that make little sense or seem to consistently miss projected targets.
- Your broker-dealer, financial advisor or investment professional fails to disclose relevant information about an investment.
- You notice unexplained losses in your account or transactions that you do not recognize.
- Your broker-dealer, financial advisor or investment professional recommends investments that are unsuitable for your needs.
- You have incurred a tax liability from an investment which appears to have dropped in value.
- You notice a steep drop in the value of investments in a short period of time.
- Your investment continues to drop in value despite the general market trend.
Remember, every investment carries with it an inherent risk of loss. A vast majority of investment losses are rather due to poor investments than fraudulent activities.
However, if you have begun to suspect that you have been the victim of securities fraud, it is important to seek legal advice from an experienced securities lawyer with an understanding of securities law in California.
