This documentary from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) provides information and insights on how to avoid investment fraud. The documentary is particularly aimed at helping educate seniors, and apparently reduced the susceptibility to investment fraud by about 50% among a test group of seniors. Indeed, in an age where knowledge is power, and in a time where the baby boomers are starting to retire, it is more important than ever that people get educated and informed on the risks of investment fraud. So arm yourself with this knowledge, and make sure you pass it on.
