Best Medical Stocks For 2014

[ October 26, 2013 | Author: admin | Weather: | Mood: normal]

It appears that scam artists are now targeting medical marijuana and legalized marijuana schemes to part you from your money. As the business opportunities are rising around the new and controversial field of legalized marijuana, so are the number of scams. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, known as FINRA in the financial industry, has issued a new investor alert targeting Marijuana Stock Scams. FINRA is warning investors about potential related scams and we are surprised that the same warning is not being sent out by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The FINA data confirmed that medical marijuana is legal in almost 20 states, and is now recreationally legal in two states, garnering much attention to the cannabis industry. FINRA warns:

Like many investment scams, pitches for marijuana stocks may arrive in a variety of ways — from faxes to email or text message invitations, to webinars, infomercials, tweets or blog posts. … The con artists behind marijuana stock scams may try to entice investors with optimistic and potentially false and misleading information that in turn creates unwarranted demand for shares of small, thinly traded companies that often have little or no history of financial success. The scammers behind these “pump and dump” scams can then sell off their shares, leaving investors with worthless stock.
