Financial fraud is any deceptive or fraudulent business practice that takes place during a financial transaction. Financial fraud can take many different forms, including bank fraud, credit card fraud, and billing fraud. It can affect individuals, companies, organizations, and even states.

Our consumer protection attorneys represent consumers in financial fraud class action lawsuits, which allow consumers to join together to bring legal claims for violation of their rights.

Our financial fraud attorneys also represent victims of securities fraud and investment fraud, including people who lost money in Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).

Financial Fraud: What to do

Dealing with financial fraud can be scary. It’s often helpful to have a police report or record that you reported the fraud, in case you later need proof that a particular charge or transaction is fraudulent. You can report financial fraud to the FTC, local law enforcement, or the FBI. You can also reach out to our law firm for help, although we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to take your case.
