According to FA-mag on January 18, the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards has imposed an automatic interim suspension for financial advisor Larry J. Templin of Temple, Texas.

Temple was reportedly barred from the securities industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in October 2018 after alleged bank fraud charges came to light.

According to FINRA’s Letter of Acceptance, Waiver & Consent, Templin allegedly refused to provide information requested by FINRA in its investigation which began after receiving his former member firm’s Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration (Form U5) that alleged bank fraud.

Temple’s FINRA BrokerCheck report indicates that he was a registered representative with Centaurus Financial Inc. in Temple, Texas from September 2006 through June 2018 when he was reportedly dismissed for “alleged bank fraud”.

Under the automatic interim suspension, Templin’s right to use the CFP certification is suspended pending further investigation, according to the article.
