Third-Party Asset Recovery Companies: Are They Advocating for You?

Victims of investment scams are wise to use caution if approached by companies promising to help them recover their lost investment funds and bring the perpetrators to "justice."  A third-party asset recovery company is a company that charges a fee to assist individuals in recovering money lost in scams.  The company claims to gather information on the scam and assist the individual in recovering lost investment dollars.  Many of these self-proclaimed recovery companies are not law firms, although they may advertise that they can provide legal assistance.  Typically, the targeted investors have lost thousands of dollars, perhaps even their entire life's savings, to fraudulent investment schemes.
