Houston based law firm Moulton & Arney, LLP is handling investment fraud cases including claims related to “Nutraceuticals” on behalf of investors nationwide.
“Nutraceutical” (derived by combining the words “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical”) refers to foods or food products that claim to provide health and medical benefits, such as weight loss, increased energy, muscle growth, or even a remedy for the common cold. Whether or not these products provide their touted health benefits, the companies that offer them may not be healthy for your investment portfolio.
In a recent Investor Alert, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) warns investors about potential scams related to “nutraceuticals.” FINRA’s warning about potential nutraceutical stock scamsincludes companies promoting products ranging from fortified foods and energy drinks to “natural” medicines. Some of these companies are running phony operations and may be the source of investment scams that have potential to harm uninformed investors.
Before investing, FINRA recommends the following:
1. Consider the source of the solicitation.
2. Always ask: “Why me?”
3. Be skeptical.
4. Find out where the stock trades.
5. If available, read the company’s SEC filings.
6. What is the company’s business focus, and has it recently changed?
7. Look into the background of the individual promoting the stock.
For more information on spotting potential stock scams and distinguishing frauds from legitimate investments, read the FINRA Investor Alert.
