In a recently published alert, the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) provides useful guidance to help investors avoid fraudulent schemes based upon investment newsletters. It’s a common problem, with investors often getting enticing information through online or hard copy newsletters. The alert points out that, though many investment newsletters are legitimate, some have been found to deceive investors.
Even if a newsletter makes specific disclosures about being compensated for promoting a stock, be aware that fraudsters may include such disclosures to create the false appearance that the newsletter is legitimate.
Fraudsters may also use newsletters as a way to get their foot in the door to pitch fraudulent investments by phone. Be careful if someone tries to get you to subscribe to a newsletter and then calls you with specific investment recommendations.
