What are Securities Fraud Charges?
Securities fraud, sometimes called stock or investment fraud, is a serious white-collar crime. Although it can be committed in several ways, securities fraud generally involves misrepresenting crucial information that investors use to make their investment and monetary decisions.
Individuals, such as stockbrokers, can be charged with securities fraud, as can organizations, such as investment banks, brokerage firms, or corporations. Independent individuals can also face these types of charges for schemes such as insider trading. Examples of securities fraud include:
- Ponzi schemes
- Pyramid schemes
- Late-day trading
- False information
- Pump-and-dump schemes
- Trading on insider information
Securities fraud charges involve complex facets of the law, finance, and investments. As such, anyone or any business accused of securities fraud needs a seasoned attorney by their side as soon as possible.
