Brokerage Fraud—


Valuable secrets every investor should know to protect his or her assets. The public has been bombarded with the many benefits of investing, yet only a fraction of investors understand how brokerage firms bend and even break the rules. Even fewer realize they have been defrauded and take action. Tracy Pride Stoneman, an arbitration lawyer, and Douglas J. Schulz, a former broker, have written the book that every investor should read. Despite being the most regulated industry in the country, the securities business consistently bends and breaks the rules. The authors reveal what those ""buy,"" ""sell,"" and ""hold"" recommendations really mean, the widespread conflicts of interest, and the most common abuses among brokerage firms. Stoneman and Shulz also discribe what investors can do to recoup any losses.

From Library Journal Stoneman, an attorney who specializes in securities cases, and Schulz, a former broker turned securities fraud consultant, have produced a guide to fraud in the securities industry for the individual investor. They describe the common types of misconduct, how to detect fraud, the actions to take, the role of regulatory bodies, and how arbitration works. Though the book includes two chapters on online trading and concludes with several chapters on choosing investments and financial advisers, it focuses on dealing with brokerage fraud; the authors even provide their phone numbers and web sites for prospective clients. The writing style is straightforward and somewhat informal, but a lot of technical information is provided. Because of its up-to-date coverage and moderate price, this book is recommended for all public libraries, even those with small investment collections. It is also appropriate as an introductory or supplemental offering in academic libraries supporting finance collections. Lawrence R.
