Michael Thomas Lombardo (CRD# 4091665) was a broker at David Lerner Associates'
Westport, Connecticut office from September 2002 until March 2014. In
September 2014, he pled guilty to one count of wire fraud (United States v. Lombardo) and also admitted to defrauding more than 20 of his David Lerner clients,
stealing more than $190,000 of their money for his own use. In response,
the SEC permanently disbarred Lombardo from practicing securities (Read the
SEC order against Lombardo).
According to FINRA,
“Lombardo consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings
that he misappropriated funds from a customer of his member firm by forging
the customer’s signature on an IRA distribution request form. The
findings stated that Lombardo took delivery of the IRA disbursement check,
forged the customer’s signature on the check and converted the funds
to his own use. Lombardo also converted additional funds from other firm

as a registered broker. In December 2012, while working for David Lerner,
Lombardo was accused of unsuitability involving real estate securities.
The case was settled in September 2013 for $35,000. In 2008, also while
Lombardo was at David Lerner, he was accused of
misrepresentation and unsuitability.
