Securities Fraud Cases in New York

Examples of Securities Fraud

Securities fraud can involve a wide scope of actions or omissions that violate securities laws which lead to financial losses and class actions.

Examples of securities fraud include:

  • Corporate fraud
  • False and Misleading Statements
  • Accounting fraud
  • Brokerage fraud
  • Mutual fund fraud
  • Ponzi schemes

During my legal career, I have provided representation in securities actions that produced settlements far beyond those typically achieved for class members, including representing institutional pension funds and hedge funds in opt-out litigation that resulted in far better settlements than would have been achieved for my firms’ clients as class members. My experience also extends to recovering multi-million dollar settlements in arbitration proceedings before the Financial Industry Regulation Authority (FINRA) and other arbitral bodies.

What is Investment Fraud

Investment fraud, which also is referred to as securities fraud, is as a serious white-collar crime. Providing false information, using or offering insider knowledge, giving bad advice, or not sharing every bit of crucial information are all forms of this type of crime. Committing accounting fraud, manipulating stock prices and being untruthful on U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission paperwork are all common types of securities fraud. There are many methods of providing false information to trick investors.

The person committing this type of fraud can be working solo as a stockbroker or be apart of a massive corporation. Insider trading scams are a common type of fraud that can be committed by individuals.

Other examples of investment fraud include Ponzi schemes, fraud using foreign currency, hedge-fund related fraud, late-day trading, advanced fee and pyramid schemes, and broker embezzlement. Outlined below will be some characteristics of the most common investment frauds:

High-yield investment fraud: This type of fraud is common as it entices investors with high returns and little to no risk. Investments could be in real estate, commodities, securities, or other categories.

Pyramid and Ponzi schemes: Pyramid and Ponzi schemes are forms of securities fraud where existing investors receive money from the contributions of new investors.

Internet fraud: One of the newer forms of securities fraud is internet fraud. This type of scheme involves forums and chat rooms to spread false information about stocks on the market. The term “pump-and-dump” is being used to label certain types of internet fraud.

Advance fee schemes: Promising greater returns, advance-fee schemes target investors for an upfront payment. This is one of the more subtle types of securities fraud actions.
