The SEC has launched a webpage with information for investors who have suffered financial harm due to securities violations. The SEC Information for Harmed Investors page contains links to actions that have resulted in payments made by defendants and respondents to satisfy a judgement against them. The SEC may choose to distribute these funds to harmed investors at its discretion – either through a third-party appointed by the court or by SEC staff members. If you have been the victim of investment fraud, please visit the site at the link above to see if your case has resulted in payment to the SEC.
If you have been the victim of stock market fraud, even if your case is listed on the SEC website, we may be able to assist you in getting fair compensation for your damages. Please contact Colling Gilbert Wright online or by calling (407) 712-7300 to schedule your free consultation today.
When an individual or entity engages in fraudulent investment schemes, the SEC launches an investigation. If illegal activity is identified, the SEC takes enforcement measures through the court system and administrative proceedings to punish the offender and get justice for investors. When enforcement actions are successful, a disgorgement of funds is ordered and those funds are distributed to investors who suffered from the securities violation. All of these actions are listed on the SEC Information for Harmed Investors page.
Even in cases where SEC enforcement is ongoing or has been successful, investors maintain the right to seek damages through individual or class action lawsuits. If you have questions about your rights following securities fraud, our stock market attorneys would be honored to meet with you free of both charge and obligation to help you determine the most effective course of action.
