Securities fraud occurs when laws meant to protect investors and securities traders, such as the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, are violated. Types of securities fraud include insider trading, accounting fraud, and presenting misleading or false information about a company or its securities to an investor or the public. Participants in a securities fraud case could include stockbrokers, analysts, brokerage firms, corporations, financial institutions, and private investors. Securities fraud is a serious crime and can lead to the imposition of civil and criminal penalties.
