The securities fraud attorneys at Meyer Wilson are currently investigating claims against former broker Jonathan S. Williams (CRD# 4069029).
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has permanently barred former NYLife Securities LLC broker Jonathan S. Williams (CRD# 4069029) “from acting as a broker and investment adviser, or otherwise associating with firms that sell securities or provide investment advice to the public.”
On April 24, 2015, NYLife Securities reported that Williams’ employment with the firm was terminated in a Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration (Form U5) for providing bank records that were determined to not be genuine due to numerous errors and multiple misspellings to NYLife Securities, among other things.
During the FINRA investigation into the allegations contained in the Form U5, FINRA requested Williams to appear and provide testimony under oath on July 9, 2015. Williams’ attorney, through a phone call with FINRA staff on July 2, 2015 informed FINRA that he would not cooperate with their investigation by appearing to give testimony on July 9.
By refusing to appear to give testimony under oath as requested, Williams violated FINRA rules 8210 and 2010. Without admitting or denying the findings, he signed a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent consenting to FINRA’s sanctions on July 10, 2016.
Williams has four pending customer complaints that allege misrepresentations of the financial value of accounts, misappropriating funds, and unsuitable sales. The disclosed damages requested total more than $1.1 million.
Williams was registered with NYLife Securities based out of Timonium, MD from February of 2016 to April of 2015. He was previously registered with:
- Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. based out of Minneapolis, MN
- Ids Life Insurance Company based out of Minneapolis, MN
