“As many of us are focused on supporting our families, friends and neighbors during this difficult time, some fraudsters are seeking to use the COVID-19 crisis as a basis for investment scams,” said Marc P. Berger, Director of the SEC’s New York Regional Office. “We look forward to sharing our insights about how investors can better protect themselves.” 

The SEC has halted trading in dozens of stocks in connection with COVID-19 and has brought charges in several alleged coronavirus scams, including allegations of misleading claims, manipulative trading schemes, and other scams. The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy and the Division of Enforcement’s Retail Strategy Task Force encourage investors to read the Investor Alert on frauds relating to COVID-19 to learn about the red flags of such schemes.
