Last week, the Security & Exchange Commission’s Office of Investor Education issued an alert with some of the key warning signs for investors that an unregistered investment offering may be a scam.

The alert is available here: http://www.sec.gov/oiea/investor-alerts-bulletins/

As the crowdfunding space rapidly grows, it’s important that investors are aware of the risks and take time to look into a platform’s background, history, and investment standards.

Our Investments Team is always available as a resource if you have questions. You can reach them at investments@fundrise.com.
