Nothing can be more upsetting than being cheated by those you trust. This is the story of systematic thievery taking place in society today, with the esteemed professionals whom we trust stealing us blind. Woody Guthrie said it best, that some will rob you with a six-gun and some with a fountain pen. This book -- part reference, part memoir and part cautionary tale -- tells the reader how to pursue financial malpractice claims against lawyers, stockbrokers, accountants, financial planners, money managers and business partners. Using examples from famous cases and those previously unreported, the author explains fraud from planning to execution, and offers tips for recovering some of the stolen money and working with the law to take action against an offender. Written with great attention to detail, this guide gives the average person tools to avoid scams and the means to take action if something goes wrong.
