industry regulatory authority, fraudsters are also now targeting people of all ages. and they seem to be focused on those who are college educated, have higher incomes and some financial knowledge. maybe they are trying to exploit the fact that we think we know more than we do. they are also looking at those who may have had a recent health or financial change. promises of high returns with little or no risk are obviously the classic red flags. but the sec has a new warning around social media. if you see a tweet mentioning you, a direct message an email or any other unsolicited communication regarding a so- called investment opportunity, please exercise extreme caution. >> jill, are there certain products that scammers are highlighting? >> reporter: absolutely. you know, now we have a lot of market volatility and interest rates are still low. so criminals are likely to be peddling the promise of high interest-bearing promissory notes. they are going to tout them as
an alternative to cds. legitimate notes are marketed almost exclusively to sophisticated or corporate investors not to people like us retail investors. there have also been scams related to real estate. now that the market is steady and growing, we see a big crop of nontraded real estate investment trusts, time share resales and brokered mortgage notes. now, these types of products often carry a lot higher risk than you realize. if you believe you have been defrauded, please file a complaint at the sec. go to sec.gov/complaint. you cannot control the markets but you can control your ability to react to these fraudulent approaches. >> all right. jill schlesinger, live for us in new york, jill, thanks. it's 5:41. is there a giant hidden planet in our own solar system? scientists look at the possibility next. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,
