Did Janet Louise Frakes Cause You Investment Losses?
Janet Louise Frakes, a former broker at Cincinnati, Ohio based Fifth Third Securities, Inc., submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent in which she agreed to, without admitting or denying, the described penalty and the entry of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s (FINRA) findings that she misappropriated more than $100,000 from the account of an elderly customer and $16,000 from another elderly customer’s account at a bank. According to FINRA, Ms. Frakes perpetrated the misappropriation of the customers’ money partially by means of submitting fake withdrawal slips. Ms. Frakes falsely signed a customer’s withdrawal slips as power of attorney (POA) on file. The bank had no record of a POA on file for the account. Additionally, FINRA sent a request to Ms. Frakes for, among other things, a signed statement responding to the misappropriation allegations. Ms. Frakes’ attorney replied to FINRA by letter, refusing to provide a written statement. Ms. Frakes of Independence, Kentucky was prohibited from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.
