SEC filed an
order instituting administrative proceedings in the case of Lori Ann Artzberger (CRD# 1324218), formerly a registered representative with The Leaders Group, Inc. and
Janney Montgomery Scott. In October of last year, Artzberger pled guilty
before the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas to two counts of theft
by deception and one count of misapplication of entrusted property.
The criminal complaint accused Artzberger of deceiving two of her customers
into giving her $134,679. Not only did the complaint allege that Artzberger
had acted deceptively, but also that she managed her customers’
funds in a way that was knowingly unlawful and risky. Artzberger admitted
to taking cashier checks from her customers and, instead of depositing
them as promised, used the money for herself.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has barred Artzberger from
