Did William Kerschbaumer Cause You Investment Losses?

William Kerschbaumer, a broker formerly employed by the Carrollton, Ohio branch of Allstate Financial Services, LLC, submitted an AWC to FINRA for allegedly forging two customers’ signatures without their knowledge or consent. William Fredrick Kerschbaumer Jr. was found by FINRA to have forged the signatures of two customers on four documents which were related to their annuity investments. FINRA’s findings state that Mr. Kerschbaumer forged a customer’s signature on two variable annuity distribution forms and, approximately three months later, again forged the same customer’s signature on a letter requesting restoration of a rider to an annuity investment without the customer’s knowledge or consent. Further, FINRA found that Mr. Kerschbaumer forged the signature of a second customer on a letter to the firm requesting a distribution from the IRA account of the customer’s ex-husband, once again without the customer’s knowledge or consent. Consequently, FINRA assessed Mr. Kerschbaumer a deferred fine of $12,500 and suspended him from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for one year.
