Alleged Web of Fraud by Former Financial Advisor Eric Erb Has Cost Investors Millions

Former financial advisor Eric Erb has been suspended by FINRA for 18 months and fined $20,000.

Erb has also been the subject of multiple customer disputes alleging that he used the forged signatures to misappropriate client funds.

In addition to the fines and pending disputes, Erb was also sentenced to 57 months behind bars in April 2018 after he pleaded guilty to wire fraud connected to a scheme in which he defrauded investors.
