FINRA recently announced that Lorraine Leonie Macko (formerly of RBC Capital Markets Corporation in Miami , Florida ) has been fined $6,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member firm in any capacity for a period of one year. The sanctions were based on findings that Lorraine Macko misused her member firm’s funds by causing funds to be credited to her personal firm brokerage account and making withdrawals totaling nearly $5,000 from that account, while failing to timely make deposits corresponding to the posted credits. The findings further stated that Macko’s account did not sufficient funds to cover her withdrawals, which her member firm funded. Finally, the findings stated that Macko caused her member firm’s books and records to be inaccurate as the false credits were reflected in the firm’s books and records.
Macko has not been registered in the industry since April 2007. Prior to working as a financial advisor for RBC Capital Markets Corporation, Macko was registered with RBC Dain Rauscher, Inc. and Wachovia Securities.
