Free Resources to Help Investors Avoid Investment Fraud

Choosing who you give your money to is just as important deciding how to invest it. That's why the U.S. Commodity Futures and Trading Commission (CFTC)<http://www.cftc.gov/> is recognizing October as SmartCheck Month. During the month, CFTC will provide investors and educators with information about avoiding investment fraud, especially the important first step: Checking to make sure the people and companies you give your money to are registered with the federal government or self-regulatory organizations.

SmartCheck.gov<http://www.smartcheck.gov/> provides tools to check the background of financial professionals<http://www.smartcheck.gov/check> and companies, as well as tips and other information to help spot and avoid fraud.

Consider ordering<https://orders.gpo.gov/cftcpubs.aspx> free materials that encourage investors to check the registration status of brokers and firms before they hand over any money. Plus, we'll explain how you can run your own SmartCheck program<https://smartcheck.gov/articles/newsarticledetails.aspx?id=3563> using CFTC videos, infographics and more.

And, follow CFTC SmartCheck on Facebook<https://www.facebook.com/CFTCSmartcheck/> and Twitter<https://twitter.com/CFTCSmartCheck> and share our SmartCheck Month messages to help your friends and followers avoid fraud.
