Did Bryce Scarfone Cause You Investment Losses?
Bryce R. Scarfone of San Francisco, California submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which he was permanently barred from working in the securities industry because he failed to comply with FINRA Rule 2010.
In January 2017, Bryce R. Scarfone joined HSBC and became registered as an Investment Banking Representative and as a General Securities Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5), disclosing that Scarfone had been terminated due to alleged conversion of funds. According to the findings, Scarfone had allegedly altered a check in the amount of $1,798.14 issued by his firm to be paid to his roommate by changing the check number and making it payable to himself without the authority to do so. The findings state that Scarfone then deposited the check into his personal bank account to use for his own benefit. Although Bryce R. Scarfone is not currently registered or associated with a FINRA member, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
Do You Need an Attorney for Securities Account Theft?
FINRA Rule 2010 requires associated persons of FINRA members to adhere to high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in the conduct of their business. Conversion is the intentional and unauthorized taking of and/or exercise of ownership over property by one who neither owns the property nor is entitled to possess it. Conversion violates FINRA Rule 2010 even if the conversion occurs outside the scope of a registered representative’s employment with a FINRA member.
