Submitting a Complaint with the Investor Protection Bureau

The Attorney General’s Investor Protection Bureau investigates suspected fraud relating to the offer, sale, or purchase of securities, including stocks, bonds, and many other types of investments.  The Bureau has the authority to commence legal actions on behalf of the public.

The Bureau does not serve as an attorney for individual investors.  If you decide to submit a complaint with the Bureau, you may want to consider whether additional steps are appropriate, such as hiring your own attorney.  Even if the Bureau does not take action on your complaint, the complaint will serve the important purpose of informing the Bureau about ongoing activity that could lead to a future investigation.
