FINRA Bars Dale Krueger for Alleged Collectible Medal Investment Scheme
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Dale Krueger has been barred from the securities industry. FINRA alleges Krueger, formerly of Moloney Securities, failed to comply with information requests relating to his alleged misuse of customer funds.
Dale Krueger, of Midland, Michigan, allegedly solicited clients to invest $25,000 in collectible medals that he sold. Krueger allegedly made the investment through a business entity that he controlled, and the funds were deposited into his bank account.
According to FINRA, the clients knew that Krueger used the funds to purchase and store the medals on their behalf, but he allegedly failed to provide any documentation of the sale. Additionally FINRA says that Krueger purportedly failed to physically separate the purchased medals from his own holdings, or to document the customers’ holdings in his records. Krueger also allegedly made unauthorized loan and commission payments totaling $5,800 to relatives of the clients.
FINRA barred Krueger in all capacities, stating he violated Rules 2150 and 2010 for improperly using customer funds and failing to observe high standards of commercial honor. Failing to cooperate with FINRA staff is a violation of Rule 8210. Krueger signed FINRA’s letter of acceptance, waiver and consent without admitting or denying the findings.
