Coral Gables, FL (PRWEB) July 29, 2008
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), issued an Investor Alert to warn non-US investors about investment fraud scam. The investment fraud scam included the use of bogus internet websites to impersonate FINRA personnel to perpetrate investment fraud against non-US foreign investors. These scams are targeted towards non-US foreign investors who lack an understanding of U.S. securities products, markets and regulations.
The FINRA Investor Alert reiterates the official FINRA website, http://www.FINRA.org, is available to seek legitimate help and advice, including the BrokerCheck portal. The BrokerCheck portal is maintained by FINRA to provide stockbroker information concerning current licensing status, employment history and reported customer complaints.
Non-US foreign investors who suspect that they have been targeted in their country by an investment fraud scam they can use the International Organization of Securities Commissioners (IOCSCO) website, http://www.iosco.org, to find their country's official regulatory organization. However, non-US foreign investors, who have questions about the handling of their brokerage accounts held in the United States, can go to the BrokerCheck portal to research their stockbroker's records.
