Lincoln

Lincoln Nebraska Securities and Commodities Law Attorney

Lincoln is a city in Lancaster County, Nebraska with scores of registered stock and commodities brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many brokerage firms comes the potential for stockbrokers, financial advisors, and representatives who may engage in conduct which violates securities and commodities industry rules and procedures. 

For example, Stephen Yarkpazuo Jensen, a former broker employed by Lincoln, Nebraska-based Allstate Financial Services, LLC, has been sanctioned based on FINRA findings that he misappropriated a customer’s funds by taking loans totaling $12,500 against her insurance policy and forging her signature to cash the checks. When the customer received a check at her home address and brought it to Mr. Jensen to return to the insurance company, Mr. Jensen allegedly forged the customer’s endorsement on the check and cashed it. Several months later FINRA stated, Mr. Jensen changed the customer’s mailing address to his office address without her knowledge or consent and applied for additional loans against the customer’s policy and caused the loan proceeds to be mailed to Mr. Jensen’s office. When Mr. Jensen received each check, he allegedly forged the customer’s endorsement and cashed it without her knowledge or consent. FINRA stated the customer was unaware of the loans until she telephoned the insurance carrier to check on the designation of beneficiaries on her insurance policy. When the customer went to Mr. Jensen’s office to pick up documents from the insurance company indicating that there had been loans against her policy and asked Mr. Jensen for an explanation, he said that her policy had been capped but that all the money would be back in her account. FINRA found that Mr. Jensen led the customer to believe that the insurance company had unilaterally taken action in her account. Ultimately, the insurance company cancelled the loans taken against the customer’s policy, and Mr. Jensen was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.
