NASAA Senior Resource Center

As your first line of defense against investment fraud, NASAA members have heard too many stories of scam artists who prey on unsuspecting seniors by offering "too good to be true" investment schemes.

Although many of the firms and individuals behind these schemes are prosecuted, we cannot guarantee that you will not become a victim.

 Education and awareness are your best weapons in the fight against investment fraud.

As the oldest international investor protection organization, NASAA is pleased to provide the tools you can use to protect yourself against investment fraud.
