According to Forbes.com, the Securities and Exchange Commission has filed a complaint against Richard A. Finger, Jr. and his broker-dealer, Black Diamond Securities LLC. The article states that “[t]he SEC Complaint alleges that from February through August 2011, the subject customer accounts had granted Finger trading authority (which he fully exercised) and, as a result, approximately $1.9 million in losses were sustained from Finger’s trading in securities — often rapid trading of index options. During the same period, the accounts paid roughly $2.1 million in commissions to Black Diamond.”
In addition to these allegations, the SEC also claims that Richard Finger and Black Diamond attempted to conceal the losses and commissions from the clients “…through the use of doctored account statements…”
