Missouri’s Secretary of State is sounding the alarm about scams and high-risk investments.
Jason Kander issued an “Investor Alert” Monday with tips on how to recognize a fraud. He says the threat of being duped doesn’t necessarily go up this time of year, but it doesn’t go away either.
Kander says avoid pitches that include offshore accounts, unclear methods, or even typos and grammatical errors… they can all be signs of something fishy. He says if you’re in doubt about an investment, contact the Secretary of State’s office to get more information on it or file a complaint.
