Investor Alert: Timothy Payne Barred from the Securities Industry

(Last Updated On: September 2, 2016)

According to FINRA, Timothy N. Payne  (CRD# 2688766 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) submitted an AWC in which he was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. Without admitting or denying the findings, Payne agreed to the sanction and to the entry of findings that  on June 1, 2016, FINRA staff sent a request to Payne for on-the-record testimony pertaining to allegations of unsuitable recommendations by Payne.

Payne allegedly acknowledged that he received FINRA’s request and will not appear for on-the-record testimony at any time. By failing to appear for on-the-record testimony as requested pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210, Payne allegedly violates FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.

Further on November 2, 2015, Payne entered into a Consent Order with the State of Missouri finding that he allegedly engaged in dishonest and unethical practices in the securities, investment, and/or insurance business. He was reportedly ordered to pay $17,750 in restitution ($10,000 of which is suspended provided he complies with the terms of the Consent Order and the Missouri Securities Act) and a $20,000 civil penalty (also suspended).
