Were you charged with securities fraud? Also called investment fraud, securities fraud can encompass a variety of offenses, most of which relate to how stockbrokers and other financial advisors support and counsel investors. If someone lies or misrepresents information in order to skew the investor’s perspective, it could set them up for a failed investment or business venture.
These types of financial losses can be extremely hefty, which is why those accused of securities fraud often face severe penalties and repercussions. Charged as a white-collar crime, a securities fraud conviction can result in imprisonment, costly legal fines, a criminal record, and more.
