Lake Wales Florida Stockbroker Fraud Attorney
Lake Wales Florida has scores 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 Florida securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Karen Beach of River Ranch, Florida was charged with securities fraud for being part of an investment scheme that acquired billions of penny stocks that were never registered for sale to the public. Mrs. Beach, owner and founder of Capital Edge Enterprises LLC worked with her daughter who owned Protégé Enterprises LLC to sell nearly 3.3 billion unregistered shares. Over the course of a year, Mrs. Beach, her daughter, and an attorney netted approximately $1.5 million in ill-gotten gains from their scheme. In order to get the unregistered stock, Mrs. Beach and her daughter used "wrap up agreements" for which they would later sell. The attorney knew that the stocks were unregistered and made false representations to investors in his professional opinion letters. In the court's final judgment, Mrs. Beach was permanently barred from participating in any future offerings of penny stocks, ordered to pay $268,936.73 in disgorgement and ordered to pay a civil penalty of $30,000.Experienced Stockbroker Fraud Lawyers Who Handle FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Lake Wales Florida and Nationwide
