FSC urges investors to exercise caution and be alert for scams

The FSC recently reminded the public that before investing in domestic or overseas securities it is wise to "look before you leap," note the associated risks, and make sure that the investment or transaction will be made via a licensed financial institution in order to safeguard their investment rights and interests. Otherwise, in the event of a transaction dispute, an investor might have no recourse to effective remedy. The FSC Securities and Futures Bureau has a special section on its website (Investors Information/Preventing Illegal Securities and Futures Practitioners) that an investor can use to check lists that give the names of FSC-approved securities firms, futures enterprises, securities investment trusts enterprises, and securities investment consulting enterprises. This website section also provides investor alerts and sets out information on various signs of possible illegal activity.
