In February of 2015, our securities fraud lawyers began investigating claims against former LPL Financial broker Charles Caleb Fackrell. We wrote a blog at that time discussing allegations against him claiming that he was allegedly selling sham investments to his customers.
Now, Fackrell has been charged with running a Ponzi scheme. According to court records, Fackrell has already reached a plea bargain with the prosecutors in the case.
According to federal prosecutors, Fackrell allegedly misled at least 20 individuals to invest approximately $1.4 million in various phony investments that he was touting. Prosecutors say that Fackrell used most of the money provided by investors for his own personal use.
Last year, Fackrell signed a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver & Consent with FINRA, consenting to findings that he concealed documents from FINRA during an investigation into alleged misconduct. As a result, Fackrell was permanently barred from associating with any FINRA member firm.
