Misrepresentation and Broker Fraud
Federal law and Texas securities statutes make it illegal for anyone to misrepresent information in connection with the sale of a stock. The law treats omissions of information the same — for instance, if a stockbroker failed to tell you about a risk involved with an investment opportunity.
If you believe you have been the victim of misrepresentation or another form of broker fraud, you have rights. You may be able to recover your losses by taking legal action against the party that misrepresented your securities investment.
