No. 452: The Texas State Securities Board Announces the Top Investor Threats for 2022

On January 10, 2022, the Texas State Securities Board (TSSB) announced the top investor threats and urged caution before purchasing popular and volatile unregistered investments, especially those involving cryptocurrency and digital assets. TSSB also announced guidance for investors, including steps to take to protect from fraud in the new year. The top 2022 threats were determined by a survey of securities regulators conducted by the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA).
