Happy New Year from InvestRight.org!

This year, instead of resolving to lose weight, get fit, or become a top-notch organizer, why not take on something new—like learning how to protect your investments.

We don’t like to think that anything bad can happen to us, or the money we invest. Yet 40% of Canadian adults have been approached with a fraudulent investment scheme and more than a million have actually been scammed. For those who have, the impact can be devastating. Depression. Wrecked relationships. Loss of trust in others. For those who haven’t—and we hope that’s you—a little time spent finding out how to protect yourself is a very wise investment.

Give yourself 10 minute today to start reading the InvestRight Investor protection section. Then come back tomorrow and read some more. At just 10 minutes a day, for a very few days early in this brand new year, you can learn to protect yourself from investment fraud, and recognize it if it ever presents itself to you or someone you know.
