The Face of Investment Fraud

Recent research has shattered the stereotype of investment fraud victims as isolated, frail, and gullible. Do you know anyone who meets the following description?

  • Self-reliant when it comes to making decisions
  • Optimistic
  • Above average financial knowledge
  • Above average income
  • College educated
  • Experienced a recent health or financial setback
  • Open to listening to new ideas or sales pitches

If so, you know someone who fits the profile of an investment fraudster's prime target.

Regardless of the profile, anyone with money is at risk of succumbing to the barrage of influence tactics used by fraudsters. Listen to stories of investment fraud from the victims themselves—and from con artists who have swindled people out of their money.
