Did Lori Ann Sacco Cause You Investment Losses?
Lori Ann Sacco of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin submitted a Letter of Acceptance Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which she was fined $10,000 and suspended for a period of six months. The sanctions were based on findings that she allegedly falsified documents by forging customers signatures in violation of FINRA Rules 4511 and 2010. The suspension is in effect from September 21, 2020, through March 20, 2021.
In March 2014, Lori Ann Sacco joined BMO Harris and was registered as a General Securities Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice stating Succo’s voluntary resignation while under investigation for the alleged misconduct. According to FINRA findings, Sacco allegedly forged signatures on at least 10 documents and submitted them as originals without the customers knowledge or approval. The findings stated that some of the documents were required to be kept by Exchange Act Rule 17a-3 and by falsifying the signatures, Sacco caused her firm to mismark their books and records. Although Sacco is no longer associated with a FINRA member, she remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 4511 requires each member to make and preserve books and records in conformity with Section 17(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 17a-3 promulgated thereunder. Inherent in this requirement is the requirement that the books and records the firm makes are accurate. When an associated person forges or falsifies a firm’s books and records, he or she violates FINRA Rule 4511. A violation of FINRA Rule 4511 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
