James V. Marino , a former stockbroker in Pompano Beach, FL, who was last employed by Edward Jones , was recently barred permanently from the securities industry by FINRA.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms. FINRA requires brokers and brokerage firms to report customer complaints and disputes as well as regulatory sanctions. In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.
In August 2017, without admitting or denying the findings, James Marino consented to a permanent bar from the securities industry and to the entry of findings that he refused to appear for on-the-record testimony as requested by FINRA in connection with their investigation related to the acceptance of gifts from a firm client and the use of the client’s credit card for his own benefit.
In October 2016 a customer of Edward Jones alleged that Marino stole money from the client during period from 11/2013-4/2016, and is seeking damages of $702,300.
Marino was discharged by Edward Jones in 10/2016, the same month the customer theft allegation was received.
