Each year investors lose billions to fraudulent activity. Today on the podcast we talk about why and how people fall prey and what steps you can take to stay safe.

My guest today is  William M. Francavilla.

Bill is a Certified Financial Planner with more than 30 years of experience in the financial services profession. He has worked as an investment advisor and professional trainer for several Fortune 500 companies, and retired from Legg Mason as senior vice president and director of corporate wealth management. 

Bill's new book is The Madoffs Among Us: Combat the Scammers, Con Artists, and Thieves Who Are Plotting to Steal Your Money.

Within our conversation today we talk about how to easily identify the people who perpetrate these crimes and avoid their deceitful practices. We also cover why it is that smart people fall for these cons. 

Bill and I chat about some of the most common scams today and how you can avoid becoming a victim.

Here's my conversation with Bill Francavilla, author of The Madoffs Among Us, in episode 319 of Informed Choice Radio.
