Stockbroker Fraud Comes in Many Forms
Part of the difficulty with stockbroker fraud is being able to identify it. Many stockbrokers and securities managers do their best to hide their fraudulent actions, concealing the misdeeds in what might look like typical dealings at a cursory glance. As such, your stockbroker could have been defrauding you for much longer than you realize.
By letting our Sandusky stockbroker fraud attorneys handle your case, we can investigate your finances, your stockbroker’s records, and more to look for all signs and instances of fraud. Meanwhile, you can continue to focus on other parts of your life, like the management of your business or time with your family.
Types of stockbroker and securities fraud that we may be able to find include:
- Inattention to the effects of market fluctuations on your investments
- Violation of reasonable broker standards such as imposition of excessive fees
- Churning of your accounts without regard to profitability and soundness of your funds
- Buying and selling stocks on your behalf with the explicit goal of making commission fees
As it can be seen in some of these examples, not all stockbroker fraud is intentionally malicious. Some cases arise out of professional negligence. Yet that does not lessen the harm or make the fraudulent behavior any less severe.
