Former Newbridge Securities Corporation broker Brian Berger plead guilty
to three counts of wire fraud in 2017. In connection with that plea, Berger
admitted that between April 2013 and September 2015, he engaged in a scheme
to defraud clients and used his position to either transfer money from
client investment accounts or convince clients to give him money to invest
in a non-existent business. Upon pleading guilty to the charges, Berger
was sentenced to 18 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.
According to FINRA records, he has been permanently barred from acting
as a broker. Meyer Wilson is interested in speaking with investors who
have complaints connected to their investments with Brian Berger.
Throughout his 15-year career in the securities industry, Berger worked
for a number of different FINRA member firms, including MetLife Securities,
Wells Fargo Advisors, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Citigroup Global Markets,
and, most recently, Newbridge Securities. According to his
BrokerCheck report, he was on the receiving end of four client complaints and previously
had been fired from his position at MetLife Securities in 2015 for failure
to follow company policies regarding customer signatures on account documents.
