Avoiding Investment Fraud

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

As a growing number of online schemes try to con investors into giving away their money, the Alliance for Investor Education released a list of 11 education resources designed to give investors a leg up on avoiding financial fraud and abuse.

“Investment fraud seems to be more prevalent today as a result of the ease of access to consumers that con artists have via the Internet,” said Alliance for Investor Education President Michael D. Jones, in a statement. Jones also serves as senior executive vice president and chief administrative officer for the NASD.
