Charleston Consumer Law Attorney With Experience & Proven Success

When you invest your hard-earned money into a financial scheme in hopes of bringing in more revenue, there are always risks. While some investments become successful, others can fall to pieces and leave investors without any money.

Attorney Traywick is dedicated to seeking justice on behalf of those that are cheated out of their money by a fraudulent or unreliable investment scheme.

There are many times that investors are abusive or may create fraudulent schemes in order to lure in investors. These individuals are then swindled of their money. Investor fraud is illegal, and those that are attacked financially by investor fraud have the right to seek compensation.

When it comes to investor’s rights, the courts are very clear that there are two different ways that people can lose money in these ventures:

Dedicated Representation For Victims Of Investment Fraud

At our Charleston investor’s rights firm, we are dedicated to defending individuals who have lost money because of a shady investment scheme. If we can show the courts that an investment was unsuitable, or that those offering the investment were dishonest, then you may be able to obtain the money that you need. In addition, if you were pulled into an unauthorized trading scam or a breach of fiduciary duty, then you may be able to obtain compensation. Those who are duped out of their money by negligence and fraud also have the right to seek monetary damages.

If your investment professional misrepresents the nature of the deal, or omits details about the investment until after he or she receives your money, this is considered deceptive. Investment claims may also be illegal if the victim can prove that his or her instructions are not followed or necessary actions are not taken. If you are coerced into investing money under extreme pressure, this may also be a reason to claim protection under individual investor’s rights.

The Two Types Of Investment Failures

➢    Normal market fluctuation – On one side, there are times that investors lose their money because of a typical fluctuation in the market. If an investment venture simply fails because of the economy or because an endeavor is not successful, then those investors have no rights to litigate. This is because they invested in a concept that was honest and just.
