Did Kenneth Brownlee Cause You Investment Losses?

Kenneth Brownlee, a former representative with Athens, Georgia-based Allstate Financial Services, LLC consented to the (FINRA) findings that he made unsuitable investment recommendations to what was a fraudulent Ponzi scheme, causing his customers to lose their entire investments. Kenneth Brownlee allegedly recommended that four of his Allstate Financial customers invest in Capital City Corporation (CCC), which turned out to be a classic Ponzi scheme using investor funds to pay for personal expenses and earnings to earlier investors.   According to FINRA, Mr. Brownlee had no reasonable basis to believe that the securities associated with the CCC Ponzi scheme were suitable for his customers, all of whom had limited investment experience and were not sophisticated investors. FINRAs findings state that the investments were not approved by his member firm and Mr. Brownlee neglected to get the advance approval from the firm to sell the investments. Consequently, Mr. Brownlee was permanently barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.

Georgia has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices.  With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to recommend investments in Ponzi Schemes and engage in all sorts of misconduct which violates Federal and Georgia securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
