Ohio Stockbroker Fraud Attorney
Ohio 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 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 Ohio securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Dominic Anthony Tropiano of Lyndhurst, Ohio submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in which he was barred for allegations of engaging in unauthorized transactions and making unsuitable recommendations in violation of FINRA Rules 2111 and 2010.
Dominic Anthony Tropiano entered the securities industry as a General Securities Representative in February 2004. Mr. Tropiano became an associated person with America Northcoast by May 2015. According to FINRA’s findings, Mr. Tropiano, while not properly registered with FINRA, made specific recommendations to at least 47 customers in 866 separate transactions without having a reasonable basis to believe those transactions were suitable in light of their investment profiles. In addition, FINRA’s investigators also found that Mr. Tropiano placed 52 unauthorized transactions in two additional customers’ accounts.
Without admitting or denying FINRA’s allegations, Dominic Anthony Tropiano agreed to the sanctions and to the entry of findings, and has been barred from associating with any FINRA member in all capacities.Experienced Stockbroker Fraud Lawyers Who Handle FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Ohio and Nationwide
