Risk of Investor Fraud in Atlanta

One of the twenty largest economies in the world and home to Coca-Cola and the Home Depot, Atlanta was greatly affected by the recent economic downturn. Many investors found out the hard way that they had been victimized, duped by their advisors into investing in high risk investments. Then there are those who intentionally misguide their clients and misrepresent their financial products, luring them into self-serving schemes. Stafford S. Maxwell, the former owner of Millennium Capital Exchange Inc. in Atlanta has been indicted for allegedly running a foreign exchange trade scam, where he raised $1 million by reportedly promising 48% to 72% returns to investors by trading through his accounts in Geneva. He posed to be an expert forex trader and assured his investors that he would keep “reserve” funds to protect them from losses, neither of which turned out to be accurate claims according to the reports.

Frauds and questionable financial schemes are more rampant than we think and no individual or community is too far from it. Securities Fraud occurs in many forms from unsuitable investments, misrepresentation and omission to breach of contract and fiduciary duty, and only seasoned securities attorneys are equipped to handle these complex cases.
