Scam artists love the holidays and will use your good intentions of giving to their advantage. Be an informed investor and learn the warning signs of fraud this season with this Christmas-themed song. Sing the InvestRight Carol (sung to the tune of Silver bells)

 

Holiday season, is the reason

To be watchful of scams

Con artists

come ou – out in full force

They ‘ll get to know you,

Pretend they like you

And promise high returns

But, all they want to do is rob you!

 

CHORUS 

Be fraud aware, get the Guide 

InvestRight is here to help you 

Subscribe to our blogs, recognize the frauds 

And re-port those pushing the scams 

 

They will cold call

Hold a seminar

Lure you in the best they can

Everything just sounds

So-o amazing

They’ll offer offshore

No risk tax-free

What a great opportunity

You’ll be pressured to get in quickly.

 

CHORUS 

 

Who’s a con artist?

What do they look like?

How will you recognize them?

When they look just like

You-u and me-e.

 

Your family likes him

Your pastor trusts him

So why shouldn’t you?

Why should you be left out of this deal?

 

CHORUS 

 

Who’s a con artist?

What do they look like?

How will you recognize them?

When they look just like

You-u and me-e.

 

Give your family and friends the gift of InvestRight this season, so we can all be fraud aware.
