Securities fraud is the act of providing false information to investors, who are fooled by the fraud into making bad investment decisions. The Enron scandal was a type of securities fraud, perpetrated by highly placed people inside the company. However, securities fraud can also be committed by stockbrokers, accountants or other third parties. Securities fraud attorneys help investors sue the wrongdoers for the return of their illegal and unjustified profits. These are legally and financially complex cases, so experts recommend that victims get help from experienced securities fraud attorneys to win all of the money to which they are legally entitled.
