Ohio Con Artist Investor Education Campaign

Monday, May 3rd, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I saw this site on a billboard outside and Arby’s I was dining at, and it got me thinking, so I wrote down the web address to explore when I got home. What I discovered was that while this site is geared towards people who live in Ohio, there is a ton of practical information that anyone – anywhere can use.

I hope, and I mean that, I really hope that other places will look into doing campaigns like this. It is an awesome tool to raise awareness and help prevent people from getting hurt by people running a con.

What I want all of you to check out are the PDF files on the site. They are titled: What is Investment Fraud?, How to Spot a Con Artist!, How to Check your Broker, and if you are an Ohio resident, I also suggest the Victim Help, File a Complaint link.

What is Investment Fraud? – this PDF walks you through all the different types of scams that are out there, what warning signs to look for, and explains ACT.

How to Spot a Con Artist – this PDF file will give you eight tips for spotting a con artist, and gives you five more tips on how to avoid falling prey to their scams.

How to Check your Broker – this PDF file is helpful for several reasons. Whether you are new to playing the stock market, or you’re just thinking about changing who you do your investing with – you will find great tips on how to select a stock broker. This file will also answer questions that will help you make the best decision on whether you need a full service dealer, portfolio manager, or a discount brokerage. It will also give you tips on how to discern for yourself if they are trading on the up and up with sound reasoning behind their choices or if they’re on the down low trading based on hunches or tips. This is great information for anyone who is thinking of investing money in the stock market.

Victim Help, File a Complaint – if you live in Ohio and have been the victim of a con artist then you want to check out this section. It will walk you through the process of filing a complaint against the person who conned you.

Whether you live in Ohio or not, I think that this site offers really useful information that can be used anywhere. Check it out today and protect your investments by being well-informed!
