Americans lose millions of dollars each year to fraudulent investments. Many consumers invest large sums of money in illegitimate real estate, telecommunications or other tangible items, such as art or coins. The law of investment fraud is aimed at identifying and eradicating fraudulent investment schemes while teaching the public to recognize investment traps. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has the authority to promulgate laws that protect against Investment Fraud. Additionally, both the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) take steps to protect consumers from becoming victims of investment fraud.
