Georgia Stockbroker Fraud Attorney

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) sanctioned Kenneth Andrew Mauchin, a former broker at Atlanta, Georgia based SunTrust Investment Services, Inc., based on findings that Mr. Mauchin withdrew $23,750 from customer accounts and used the funds to buy cashier’s checks that he deposited into an account that he controlled.  Mr. Mauchin falsely listed his work address as the mailing address for customer accounts, which prevented the customers from discovering Mr. Mauchin’s misappropriation of funds.  FINRA found that as a result, Mr. Mauchin caused his firm to have false books and records.  FINRA’s findings also stated that Mr. Mauchin did not appear for a FINRA on-the-record testimony.  FINRA’s Enforcement Department did not seek restitution because the member firm reimbursed the customers.  Mr. Mauchin of Sanford, Florida was prohibited 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 engage in one or more kinds of stockbroker fraud. They could make misrepresentations about investing in securities (stocks, bonds, options, mutual funds, REITs, Junk Bonds, Hedge Funds, Structured Products, etc.) they are selling. Unsuitable recommendations of the strategies they recommend (margin, short selling, option) is another kind of stockbroker fraud.  They can engage in many other kinds of stockbroker fraud and stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Georgia securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.  Experienced Stockbroker Fraud Lawyers Who Handle FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Georgia and Nationwide.

Georgia Securities Arbitration Attorneys Who Represents Investors

Jeremy Gerald Tintle, a former broker in Atlanta, Georgia and previously employed at Memphis, Tennessee-based Morgan Keegan & Company, Inc. and New York, New York-based Oppenheimer & Co., Inc., was named a respondent in a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) complaint claiming that he participated in a private securities transaction outside the scope of his association with his firm.  He allegedly did not provide the firm with prior written notice of the proposed transaction, his proposed role in it, or the selling compensation he might obtain from the transaction.  FINRA found that the firm never approved the limited partnership for sale through the firm.  Mr. Tintle submitted the firm’s annual compliance questionnaire wherein he falsely represented that he did not participate in private securities transactions away from the firm without the firm’s prior approval.  FINRA also found that Mr. Tintle recommended an investment in the entity to a customer without researching that the recommendation was suitable, as its speculative and illiquid nature was inconsistent with the customer’s other security holdings, financial situation, and needs.  The customer invested $1 million in the entity, which included more than 70 percent of her liquid net worth, resulting in an unsuitable concentration of the customer’s liquid assets.  The customer’s unsuitable, concentrated position in the entity exposed her to a loss of approximately $153,396 on her investment in the entity.  Further, FINRA found that at various times and while with separate member firms, Mr. Tintle misused and converted customers’ funds by inducing the customers to withdraw and wire funds from their brokerage accounts to third-parties.  The funds were not applied to the purchase of securities as the customers had instructed but were retained by the transferees.
