Securities fraud occurs when investors are enticed to purchase or sell stock based upon false information, often resulting in the loss of investor funds. Securities fraud may also include: insider trading, false information on a company’s financial statement and other stock manipulation schemes.
Securities fraud is not just confined to the United States. Just as the U.S. economy has expanded globally, so has stock fraud. Large numbers of foreign companies are listing their stock on U.S. markets including the NYSE and NASDAQ. If you suspect that you are the victim of securities fraud, please contact Tostrud Law Group.
