Outsmarting Investment Fraud

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNL, (402) 472-6265,
Investment fraud affects thousands of Americans and accounts for billions in lost savings every year. The profile of a typical fraud victim is not who you might think—they are financially knowledgeable, have above average income, are college educated, and self-reliant when it comes to making decisions. Moreover, a majority of investors ages 55 to 65 do not perceive themselves as vulnerable to investment fraud; yet many of their reported investment behaviors put them at risk. This curriculum, developed by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, employs video excerpts and interactive exercises that teach you the persuasion tactics commonly used by fraudsters and the steps you—and every investor—can take to reduce the risk of being defrauded. Offered in collaboration with AARP. Instructors: Rebecca Franciscus, attorney advisor, Enforcement Division, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and Amy Nofziger, director of region-al operations, Income Impact Area, AARP Foundation.
