Investment Fraud: What It Is and How to Avoid It
Investment fraud, also known as securities fraud and stock fraud, occurs when a financial advisor gains an investorâ€™s trust and abuses that trust by making false statements or omitting material statements of fact in order to cause the investor to buy or sell a security, and the investor loses money as a result. Â Investment fraud victims are often over age 50.
Bernard Madoff and Affinity Fraud
On December 11, 2008, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged Bernard Madoff, the former NASDAQ Chairman, with fraud. Â This may be the largest investor fraud ever committed by a single person. Â Madoff admitted to defrauding investors of up to $50 billion in a Ponzi scheme, according to prosecutors. Â In a Ponzi or pyramid scheme, new investor money is used to pay earlier investors to give the illusion that the investment strategy is successful. Â When the flow of new money stops, the scheme fails. Â Madoff allegedly told his sons that his investments were â€œone big lieâ€?. Â He confessed after he realized he would not be able to come up with money to satisfy requests from clients to withdraw funds. ReadÂ more...
