What is Securities Fraud?
Securities fraud involves illegal acts that encourage investors to make purchase or sales decisions that are based on false information. This leads to losses and violations of securities laws. Securities fraud cases can involve executives and licensed stockbrokers and they can carry both civil and criminal penalties. Securities fraud cases are often complex investigations that require a special set of skills and knowledge to handle the case properly.
