New York City
New York is a city in the state of New York, with thousands 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, Stephanie Fagenson, a broker employed by New York city New York based National Securities Corporation, submitted a AWC to FINRA for falsely representing that she had verbally confirmed two wire requests which turned out to be fraudulent requests from a customer’s hacked email account. Stephanie Lynn Fagenson allegedly caused two fraudulent wire disbursements to be transferred from her customer’s account to a third-party bank. According to FINRA, Ms. Fagenson received an email from an imposter posing as her customer requesting $100,000 to be wired to a third-party bank account. Ms. Fagenson allegedly processed the wire request without orally confirming the request with the customer, as was required by her member firm. Two weeks later, Ms. Fagenson purportedly received another email from the imposter requesting another wire transfer. This time, the request was for $200,000 and, again, Ms. Fagenson allegedly processed the wire without orally confirming with her customer. Ten days following the second wire transfer, Ms. Fagenson supposedly found out in a conversation with her customer that the customer’s email account had been hacked and that none of the wire requests had come from the customer. FINRA assessed a fine of $5,000 and suspended Ms. Fagenson from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for 45 days.Representing Clients Throughout New York and Nationwide
