Definition of Investment Fraud and Securities Fraud

Investment fraud, also commonly referred to as securities fraud, entails the employment of deceptive tactics, such as the dissemination of false or misleading information, to influence the investment choices of individuals, leading to significant financial losses. Unscrupulous brokers might also engage in the direct theft of investors’ funds or securities.

Example Scenario: An investor is persuaded by their broker to put a large portion of their retirement savings into a high-risk, illiquid investment. The broker downplays the risks, misrepresents the potential returns, and pressures the investor to make a quick decision. The investment ultimately fails, leading to significant losses for the investor.

Upon initially engaging a broker-dealer, you probably placed your trust in them to prioritize your interests. Regrettably, numerous brokers and financial advisors fail to uphold their fiduciary responsibility, or they may engage directly in securities fraud. These professionals could deceive you regarding investment opportunities, hide potential risks, partake in excessive trading (known as churning) to earn commissions, or impose undisclosed fees, leading to overcharging.

Kansas and Federal Laws That Protect Investors

Kansas investors benefit from a robust framework of protections designed to ensure fair and transparent markets. These safeguards include:

  • Key Laws and Regulations
    • Kansas Uniform Securities Act: The cornerstone of Kansas investor protection, this law combats fraud, mandates the registration of most securities, and provides avenues for investors to seek recourse if they’ve been misled.
    • Kansas Corporations Code: This outlines shareholder rights and the responsibilities of company leaders, aiming to ensure that corporations act in the shareholders’ best interests.
    • Kansas Unfair Trade and Consumer Protection Act (DTPA): This broad law empowers investors to take action against unfair or deceptive investment practices.

  • Governing Agencies
    • Kansas State Securities Commissioner: This agency is the primary watchdog for the Kansas securities industry. They register offerings, license brokers, investigate misconduct, and educate investors about their rights.
    • Office of the Kansas Attorney General (Consumer Protection Division): Focused on consumer protection, this office can intervene in cases of investment fraud or other deceptive practices that harm Kansas investors.
  • National Regulatory Bodies
    • FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority): FINRA oversees all broker-dealers in the US, setting ethical standards, enforcing securities laws, and providing investor education resources. They work alongside the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) for broad investor protection.

If you suspect you’ve fallen prey to investment fraud, reaching out to a lawyer specializing in investment fraud cases is crucial.

Can I Recover my Investment Losses?

In order to recover your investment losses, you must work alongside us to prove that your broker-dealer or financial advisor violated securities laws,  breached their fiduciary duty to you as an investor and violated securities industry conduct rules.

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 is a streamlined, cost-effective way to resolve disputes between investors and their brokers without going to court – it also allows you to collect punitive damages, which are not available in civil court.

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 Kansas, including:
