Houston Investment Fraud Lawyer

Investment fraud is a type of crime that involves investment activity not regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Actions which may be considered to be investment fraud include the misrepresentation of risk potential and the promise of profits which cannot be realized, among other things. Unfortunately, these accusations can lead to serious criminal charges.

If you or someone you know has been accused of committing investment fraud, you may be facing a range of negative consequences, including large fines, jail time, and irreparable damage to your personal and professional reputation. Contact the Houston investment fraud attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C., today at 713-523-0404 to learn more about what you can do to protect yourself from this damaging accusation.

Forms of Investment Fraud

Investment fraud can occur in a number of ways. The following are some of the most common types of investment fraud:

  • Ponzi schemes
  • Pyramid schemes
  • Investments involving tangible objects like rare art, precious metals, etc.
  • Investments involving telecommunication

Because these types of investments are subject to less regulatory scrutiny than more traditional forms of investment, they are more vulnerable to willful misrepresentations. Frustratingly, though, even a legitimate business enterprise in any of these areas may falsely be accused of investment fraud if clients are unhappy with the return on their investment.
