A knowledgeable investor is the best defense against investment fraud. If you're investing outside of the government-sponsored investment options, don't hand over your money until you have completed the "Four C's":
Consider your options, including suitability and risk.
Compare it to other investments.
Consult with an objective, third party on base, someone who is knowledgeable about finance.
Call or email the Securities Division's Investigator on Duty to verify license status of the investment salesperson, product and company.
