Brian Michael Berger (CRD# 3208127), formerly registered with
Wells Fargo Advisors and
MetLife Securities has been accused by a customer of misappropriating funds. In connection
with an investigation into these allegations, FINRA requested Berger submit
various documents and information. Berger failed to cooperate with the
FINRA investigation, which is a violation of securities industry regulations,
and has since been barred from the securities industry.
Unfortunately, senior citizens are a common target of investment fraud.
This can happen for
a number of reasons, including:
- Perceived cognitive impairments
- Grief due to loss of spouse or loved ones
- More time and availability to listen to investment proposals
- Politeness – many elderly investors will give into an investment
pitch so they don’t seem rude
