What is Securities Fraud?

Stockbrokers and brokerage firms are obligated to follow the “Know Your Customer Rule,” which requires that they be mindful of each client’s investment objectives, disposable income, and tolerance for risk, while recognizing the purpose for the invested funds and investing only in accordance with said objectives. Every year, however, millions of dollars are lost due to violations of this rule. In 2017 alone, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) obtained judgments and orders totaling more than $4 billion in disgorgement and penalties for securities fraud, and this only represents the fraud that was discovered and successfully prosecuted.

Types of securities and stockbroker fraud can include:

  • Unauthorized trading
  • Investing in unauthorized stocks or securities
  • Violating risk tolerance levels set forth by brokerage agreements
  • Purchasing/selling securities not registered with the SEC
  • Supplying false or misleading information to potential purchasers
  • Willful omissions of fact in official documents filed with the SEC
  • Intention to mislead through interstate communication with prospective purchasers

Hare Wynn has served as lead counsel in numerous securities cases and has successfully represented victims of stockbroker fraud and unethical or improper investing. Many of our clients have suffered significant losses to their retirement and other investment accounts due to unauthorized trading by stockbrokers and brokerage firms.
