Investment Fraud Seminar Hosted at Piedmont Crossing

July 22, 2016

Piedmont Crossing will host an investment fraud prevention seminar on Thursday, August 4 at 2pm on the campus of the retirement community. The public is invited.

Many people do not think they can become a victim of investment fraud. Neither did the nearly 500 people who trusted J.V. Huffman, Jr., of Conover, NC, or the 100 people who trusted Sid Hanson, of Charlotte, NC, with approximately $25 million and $30 million (respectively) of their money.

At this presentation,  guests will learn how to recognize and avoid possible investment scams.  Attendees will learn how to spot the red flags of potential investment fraud, learn the importance of due diligence, and the questions to ask investment professionals. This seminar will provide information on what steps to take should one fall victim to an investment scam. Information will also be presented on how to register advance health care directives with the Secretary of State’s office.

The seminar will be presented by John Maron, Director of the Investor Protection and Education Services Division of the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State.
