A: If you're concerned that your investment in a Delaware trust may be a scam, it's crucial to take immediate action. Verify the legitimacy of the trust by checking if it's registered with the appropriate regulatory bodies. You should also review the communications and agreements you received when you invested for any representations made about returns and capital protection.

If the trust is non-responsive and payments have ceased without explanation, consider contacting an attorney who deals with securities or investment fraud to evaluate your situation. In the meantime, gather all documentation related to your investment, including any correspondence, as this will be important for any potential legal action. It's also advisable to report your concerns to the SEC or your state's securities regulator. Quick intervention is important to protect your rights and potentially recover your investment.
