California Securities Account Theft Lawyer
California 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 transfer cash and/or securities out of your account, that is steal or commit theft and all kinds of other stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and California securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Bradley Everett Gardner of Fort Bragg, California submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) in which he was prohibited by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for allegedly converting customer funds in violation of FINRA Rules 2150(a) and 2010.
Bradley Gardner joined LPL Financial LLC as a General Securities Representative in February 2012. FINRA’s findings stated that the firm, in a Form U5, reported Mr. Gardner's voluntary resignation relating to allegations that he accepted a client check made payable to himself. According to FINRA, Mr. Gardner allegedly told his customer she could pre-pay her fees at a discounted rate if she wrote a check payable to him in the amount of $7,400. FINRA also found that when the customer complied, he deposited the check into his personal bank account for his benefit. When the firm discovered this transaction, Mr. Gardner reimbursed the customer the $7,400 and was terminated.
Bradley Everett Gardner did not admit to or deny FINRA’s findings and was barred from associating with any FINRA member in all capacities.Experienced Attorneys With Securities Account Theft Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout California and Nationwide
