Boiler Room Fraud
Skilled Miami Criminal Defense Lawyers Can Fight For You
The phrase “boiler room” describes a sales operation that uses
aggressive tactics and sometimes antagonistic sales calls in order to
recruit possible investors in stock. While aggressive tactics to sell
stock are not necessarily wrong, in some cases, individuals running operations
that defraud potential investors can be charged with boiler room fraud
by federal and state authorities. The consequences of such a charge are
serious and may be detrimental to someone’s reputation and business,
even if they aren’t true.

Boiler Room Charges & Penalties
A differentiation between bad investment advice and intentional fraud must
be made. Even if an investor loses money, that does not necessarily indicate
fraud was involved. A true boiler room situation occurs when someone intends
to gain from tricking investors into giving them money, or when reckless
disregard for true facts concerning the investment is present.
Take a look at some examples of boiler room fraud:
Ponzi Schemes – Old investors gain money from new investors and profit is only
generated by new business.
Microcap Fraud – Penny stock value is falsely represented by aggressive sales tactics
until the sellers make profit.
Pre-IPO Scams – Investors think they can buy into an IPO, but are instead sold
These schemes and scams may result in a laundry list of criminal charges.
Some criminal charges that could be brought up in a boiler room scheme
