The United States Securities and Exchange Commission reports that thousands of U.S Investors fall victim to fraud and other securities law violations. Due to these securities-related crimes, many investors lost money and investments. In some circumstances, victims may be able to recover some of the money they lost. At the same time, some investors may be unable to recover any money at all.

Fortunately, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has curated free resources available to victims of securities fraud and other securities law violations. These resources provide valuable information for victims on how they can detect fraud, what they can do to prevent it, and who they can reach for assistance.
