Business and Investment Fraud

When you use your money to make a purchase you’re investing in your future success. Whether you’ve bought goods like cars and computers, services,, or property, you carefully considered all of your options before you invested your resources.

If you’ve discovered that someone materially misrepresented the facts to you, or misled you in making your purchase, you likely feel betrayed and are wondering where to turn next. Fraud cases are more prevalent than you may have thought. According to the 2014 Global Fraud Study conducted by The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, a typical organization loses a median of five percent of its resources annually due to fraud.

Individuals and companies have a legal responsibility to accurately represent their products and services – whether they are selling consumer goods, selling professional services, or selling a business. When a person or company misleads people regarding their products or services, they are exposing themselves to civil liability and are liable for damages resulting from fraud and misrepresentation.
