In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.
In 12/2017 FINRA permanently barred Likens from the securities industry to resolve allegations that he engaged in dishonest and unethical practices.
Liken’s official FINRA record discloses 13 prior settlements with customers of his prior employer Merrill Lynch. All of the claims allege that customers were sold non firm approved promissory notes. Total settlements exceed $1.3 million.
