What Our Skilled Ridgway, CO Financial Advisor Misconduct Law Firm Wants You To Know 

Unfortunately, incidents of broker or investment adviser misconduct happen more than you think, and it is the investors who are harmed that end up suffering. Yes, there are questions that you could have asked or even red flags that might have served as preemptive screening measures when vetting a financial advisor before deciding to work with them. However, financial advisor fraud isn’t always easy to spot or recognize even after the fact. Whatever the case, becoming a victim of any of the following is not your fault:

 Stockbroker misappropriation

  • Unauthorized trading
  • Churning
  • Selling away
  • Unregistered securities sales
  • A Ponzi scam
  • An affinity scam
  • Senior investment fraud
  • Promising guaranteed returns
  •     Your broker asking you to write a check directly to them and pocket the funds
  • The financial advisor using your money to fund their lavish lifestyle
  • Doctoring of your account statements to hide fraudulent activities
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Gross negligence

Often, what could be considered broker fraud, such as unsuitable investment recommendations or misrepresentations and omissions, may not necessarily have involved any bad intentions on the part of the financial advisor. Ignorance or carelessness could have been at play. None of that necessarily exempts the registered representative and their firm from liability.

If you are thinking about confronting your broker or investment adviser by yourself, please reconsider. Most financial advisors, especially those who have purposely defrauded you, will not admit to wrongdoing. They certainly won’t want to open themselves up to lawsuits. They may even try to sabotage any legitimate claim you could have against them and damage your chances of receiving compensation.
