Merrill Lynch Broker Marcus Boggs Reportedly Barred after Alleged Unauthorized Funds Transfers
Are you concerned about your investments with Marcus Boggs of Chicago, IL? If so, the securities attorneys at the White Law Group may be able to help you.
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator has reportedly barred financial advisor Marcus Boggs from associating with any FINRA member after he reportedly failed to answer requests for information in FINRA’s investigation. He was reportedly barred indefinitely on April 15, 2019.
The bar comes after three customer complaints were reportedly filed against him for allegations of “unauthorized ACH transfers made to an American Express account from the Client’s account.” The settle amount for the three disputes is approximately $5.6 million dollars.
Boggs was registered with Merrill Lynch in Chicago, IL from February 2006 until he was allegedly dismissed in December 2018 for “Conduct including withdrawal of funds from client accounts without their knowledge or approval,” according to his FINRA BrokerCheck report.
