Brokers barred for stealing from elderly widow
As shown by this press release, FINRA barred two JP Morgan Chase Securities brokers for taking $300,000 in annuity proceeds from an elderly widow.
Although the firm paid the monies back to the customer, in many instances securities brokerage firms claim they are not responsible for the theft or wrongful acts of their brokers. However, multiple legal theories mandate liability for a firm for the wrongful acts of its brokers/agents even if the firm claims it did not know of the activity.
