In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jeff Rose explains a few investment tactics that may be waiting to snatch away your money. The first is A-Share mutual funds, otherwise known as loaded mutual funds. 

This is followed by actively managed indexed funds, which are known to be very cheap.

The next funds are REITs, or real estate investment trusts. These stocks are illiquid, or stocks you are not able to cash out. Rose gives an anecdote of one case in which REITs can dig you into a more serious corner by yielding zero dividends. The final bad investment decision Rose targets is wholesale life insurance. 

Rose warns that trusting in the returns of these investment methods, may eventually lead to your getting ripped off.
