Types of Investment Fraud Charges
Investment fraud is defined as the intentional use of deception to persuade investors to make financial decisions based on false information. In other words, individuals who convince others to invest money—by way of false information—into something they know either doesn’t exist or not what the money is intended for can be charged with investment fraud.
The most common types of investment fraud include:
- Insider trading
- Ponzi schemes
- Accounting fraud
- Telemarketing fraud
- Real estate fraud
- Blind pools
- Timeshare fraud
- Nigerian letter schemes
- Dummy corporations
- Mutual fund fraud
The Securities and Exchange Commission is mainly responsible for prosecuting securities fraud. While the state of New York has their own set of laws regarding securities fraud, these crimes are often prosecuted as federal crimes. In most cases, the standard prison sentence is five years per offense.
