Types of securities fraud

Securities fraud can lead to serious potential penalties and consequences for accused individuals facing securities fraud charges. As a result, it is worthwhile for those impacted by securities fraud to be familiar with the different types of securities fraud and how the legal system handles securities fraud. As a type of white collar crime, securities fraud is not treated lightly.

Securities fraud can include a variety of different alleged schemes such as high yield investment fraud; late day trading; hedge fund-related fraud; advanced fee schemes; foreign currency fraud; broker embezzlement; Ponzi schemes; and pyramid schemes. Securities fraud may involve investment opportunities that seem to pose little risk with the potential for high returns and can come in many forms.

It is important for anyone involved in securities fraud to be protected which includes individuals who have been accused of committing securities fraud. Accused individuals have the same criminal defense rights of any other accused individual who has been accused of committing a crime. It is essential for accused individuals to understand what it is that authorities have alleged against them and to understand the criminal defense resources available.

A strong criminal defense strategy can help accused individuals with the potential penalties and consequences they are facing as a result of criminal accusations, allegations and charges including securities fraud. Securities fraud and other types of white collar crime carry possibly stiff penalties and consequences which is why accused individuals should be familiar with criminal defense options and how they apply to their situation.
