Federal Securities Fraud

Call Our Trusted West Covina Federal Crimes Attorneys Now

"Securities fraud" is a particular kind of fraud involving the manipulation and theft of certain investments, such as corporate stocks, municipal investments, and other holdings. While each state has its own securities fraud laws, these offenses are often policed and tried by the Securities and Exchange Commission. As with other federally tried offenses, these cases can be complex and result in harsh penalties for the accused.

You do not have to let the federal allegations against you go unanswered. Contact our firm today to start exploring your options.

Common Forms of Securities Fraud

Because it is such a broad term, securities fraud can occur in various ways.

There are, however, several different forms of the crime that have become common and are frequently recognized by federal authorities.

  • "Churning" - churning occurs when brokers advise their client to trade aggressively, which results in numerous (and needless) fees that benefit the broker.
  • Misrepresentation - brokers can often misrepresent the value of a particular security to their client (or the public) in order profit from the anticipated investments.
  • Insider training - insider trading occurs when someone from inside a company with privileged information about the company uses that information to profit on the company's stocks.

Other forms of securities fraud include Ponzi schemes, mutual fund fraud, accountant fraud, corporate fraud, and many others. No matter what specific allegations you may be facing, prison time, fines, restitution, and other penalties may result if a conviction is reached.
