Comprehensive Due Diligence

We complete a full background check of the responsible parties and their companies during this stage of the investigation. This includes searching for criminal history, credentials and any other pertinent information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Investment Fraud FAQs

  • There are three main types of investment fraud: market manipulation, insider trading, and Ponzi schemes. Market manipulation happens when an individual or organization tries to manipulate the price of a security by artificial means like buying and selling large volumes. Insider trading refers to traders who make illegal profits by sharing information that they know ahead of time about a company's future earnings. And Ponzi schemes happen when someone takes in money from new investors with promises of high returns but then does not actually invest the money into any legitimate business venture.

  • Some red flags that may indicate that someone is committing investment fraud are if the person offering the investment has little experience or knowledge about financial markets and investments. This may be because they're not actually invested in the project, or they're just trying to take advantage of you. Be wary if anyone is pressuring you to commit right away - this could also be an indicator of fraud. Also, be careful about promises made by scammers. Some scammers will claim that their investment will double, triple or even quintuple in value within a short period of time. However, this is almost always impossible to happen and can lead to serious financial losses.

  • When it comes to making an investment decision, it's important to be very cautious. Don't overthink things or blindly trust anyone. Do your own research and read reviews of different financial products before investing. Make sure to keep all relevant documents, emails, and contracts related to the investment for later use if needed. And lastly, always contact the company you are thinking of investing in for more information - do not rely on testimonials alone.

  • Technology can be a great tool in helping to identify potential scam artists or fraudulent investments. By using online tools such as social media, review websites and databases, or other software programs, you can quickly and easily identify red flags that may indicate potential fraud. For example, high interest rates, unusually fast profits, unrealistic promises about future earnings, or unusual marketing tactics.
