What Exactly is Investment Fraud and Securities Fraud?

Investment fraud, often referred to as securities fraud, is characterized by the use of deceitful tactics, such as the dissemination of false or misleading information, to influence investors’ decisions, leading to significant financial losses. Unscrupulous brokers might go as far as directly stealing funds or securities from investors.

Real Life Scam In Colorado:

One the biggest frauds originating in Colorado are perpetrated by Greg Lindberg and the Colorado Bankers Life Insurance Company and the Bankers Life Insurance Company, which are currently been placed into liquidation by court order.  These companies were involved in the offer and sale of annuities and annuity like investments in Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda), PB Investment Holdings, and others.  Many brokerage firms participated in these scams without doing adequate due diligence, a responsibility many investors depend on their stockbrokers to do for them.

When you first hired your broker-dealer, it’s likely that you trusted them to put your best interests first. Unfortunately, many brokers and financial advisors don’t live up to their fiduciary duty or have committed outright securities fraud. They might mislead you about investments, conceal risks, engage in excessive trading (churning) to generate commissions, or overcharge you with hidden fees.

Can I Recover my Investment Losses?

In order to recover your investment losses, you must prove that your broker-dealer or financial advisor violated the federal or state securities statutes, committed fraud, breached their fiduciary duty to you as an investor or the brokerage firm was negligent in hiring and supervising the stockbroker, you have been dealing with for years.

In most cases, this means filing a FINRA arbitration claim against the broker-dealer and/or representative.

The majority of securities fraud cases are handled by FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) rather than being brought to the court system.

FINRA arbitration offers a simplified and economical solution for resolving conflicts between investors and their brokers, bypassing the need for court proceedings. It also provides the opportunity to obtain punitive damages, an option not available in civil courts.

As an investor, you have certain rights that must be respected and protected.

We’re currently investigating several financial firms and stockbrokers who may have been the subject of customer complaints, may be facing legal action, and who may have acted unethically and committed fraud in Colorado, including:
