Financial advisor fraud leads to serious losses. It is an umbrella term often used to refer to all kinds of broker misconduct or negligence—whether or not malicious intent was involved—including unsuitable investment recommendations, concentration, selling away, excessive trading, misrepresentations and omissions, failure to supervise, and gross negligence. However, there are also incidents in which a broker or investment adviser may have sought to purposely defraud an investor, including those involving:

  • Unauthorized trading.
  • Fabricating or fudging with the numbers on account statements.
  • Engaging in aggressive, high-pressure sales tactics.
  • Promising you high returns while claiming there is 0% chance of loss.
  • Claiming your money is going to a specific investment but then it ends up elsewhere.
  • Stealing your money out of your brokerage account.
  • Obtaining power of attorney over your finances.
  • Taking advantage of a loved one’s disabilities, such as dementia, and getting them to agree to a specific high-risk investing strategy even though they lack the capacity to make such decisions.
  • Operating a Ponzi scam.
  • Running an affinity scheme.
  • Much more.

We have helped thousands to collectively recover many millions of dollars through our efforts and hard work.
