Many fraudsters rely on the telephone to carry out their investment scams. Using a technique known as cold calling (so-called because a caller telephones a person with whom they have not had previous contact), these fraudsters will hound you to buy stocks in small, unknown companies that are highly risky or, sometimes, part of a scam. In recent years, the Internet has also become increasingly attractive to fraudsters because it allows an individual or company to communicate with a large audience without spending a lot of time, effort, or money.
You should be skeptical of any offers you learn about from a cold caller or through the Internet. Here's what you need to know about cold calling and Internet fraud.
For many businesses, including securities firms, cold calling serve as a legitimate way to reach potential customers. Honest brokers use cold calling to find clients for the long term. They ask questions to understand your financial situation and investment goals before recommending that you buy anything.
Dishonest brokers use cold calling to find "quick hits." Some set up "boiler rooms" where
high-pressure salespeople use banks of telephones to call as many potential investors as
possible. Aggressive cold callers speak from persuasive scripts that include retorts for your
every objection. As long as you stay on the phone, they'll keep trying to sell. And they won't
let you get a word in edgewise. Our advice is to avoid making any direct investments over the phone.
