Representation in Federal Court
How do you determine the appropriate stage for your claim against those who have financially defrauded either you or your family? Seek experienced legal representation to aid you in navigating the nuances of your particular situation.
Financial fraud is subject to both state and federal laws and the enforcement of these laws is based on factors that include:
- Which laws – whether state, federal, or both — were violated
- The type of fraud involved
- The amount of financial loss involved
- Where the fraud took place, whether in a state, across state borders, or across national borders
- What kind of federal or state public services were utilized in the fraud (including the U.S. Postal Service, SEC filings, telecommunications, and others)
What are some common types of fraud?
Financial fraud takes on many forms, including, but not limited to the following:
- Investment fraud
- Pension and trust fund fraud
- Elder financial fraud
- Fraud related to securities, commodities, and other investments
- Bank fraud
- Ponzi schemes
What constitutes securities fraud punishable in federal court?
Actions on the federal level are usually made under Federal Statute 10-b5, which states:
- Employment of manipulative and deceptive devices
It shall be unlawful for any person, directly or indirectly, by the use of any means or instrumentality of interstate commerce, or of the mails or of any facility of any national securities exchange,
- (a) To employ any device, scheme, or artifice to defraud,
- (b) To make any untrue statement of a material fact or to omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements made, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, or
- (c) To engage in any act, practice, or course of business which operates or would operate as a fraud or deceit upon any person, in connection with the purchase or sale of any security.
(Sec. 10; 48 Stat. 891; 15 U.S.C. 78j)
