The Securities and Exchange Commission has reportedly charged former LPL broker, Kerry Hoffman, and a friend for allegedly fraudulently selling securities to retail investors. Hoffman’s associate was reportedly previously charged by the SEC and allegedly convicted for purportedly stealing money from investors.
The SEC alleges that between July 2015 and July 2018, Hoffman and his friend raised more than $3.3 million from 46 investors through the sale of unregistered GT Media Inc. (Joy of Mom) securities.
According to Hoffman’s broker check report, he was allegedly registered with LPL Financial in Mundelein, IL from February 2010 until he voluntarily resigned in October 2018 because he purportedly “Held a private investment and executed an agreement to act as a Consultant to a company without disclosing or obtaining prior approval from LPL. Assisted some family members and a few clients with making investments in same company.”
