The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms.

In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.

In 10/2019 New Jersey Bureau of Securities assessed civil and administrative penalties and fines in connection with a fraud investigation. The regulator alleged that Sparacino made untrue statements and omitted to state material facts necessary in order to make the statements made and engaged in dishonest or unethical business practices in the securities business. The monetary sanctions were $250,000.
In 12/2018, FINRA case 18-04014 was filed by a customer of First Standard Financial Company alleging churning and unsuitable trades with alleged damages in the amount of just over $90,000. This case is pending.
