Potential Warning Signs

If you invest in stocks, bonds, variable annuities, limited partnerships, mutual funds, certain commodities, and you have experienced problems or unexpected losses, you may be a victim of investment broker fraud. Because most cases of stock broker fraud never get exposed, it is important for investors to have an expert like Mr. Bradley review their account for any questionable activity.

Below are some indications that you may have a stock broker who is breaching his or her obligations to you, the client:

  • If your stock broker recommends investments inconsistent with your financial goals and expressed risk desires, you may be the victim of stock broker fraud or misconduct.
  • If your advisor fails to disclose important details about an investment, you may be the victim of stock broker fraud or misconduct.
  • If your stock broker recommends a dramatic change in your investment strategy, you may be the victim of stock broker fraud or misconduct.
  • If your stock broker traded on your account without your knowledge or authorization, you may be the victim of stock broker fraud or misconduct.
  • If your stock broker conducted excessive trades in your account, you may be the victim of stock broker fraud or misconduct.
  • If your stock broker guarantees that an investment is a "sure thing," you may be the victim of stock broker fraud or misconduct.
  • If your statements contain transactions that you do not recognize or understand, you may be the victim of stock broker fraud or misconduct.
