June 2017-Stuart, Florida
We are investigating Stuart-based Janney Montgomery Scott stockbroker Christopher D. Sinkula. FINRA records indicate that Sinkula has been employed by Janney Montgomery Scott since 8/2008.
Our client is a single lady approaching retirement who alleges damages for unsuitable investments which she alleges were purchased for her account by Sinkula.
Sinkula’s official broker records disclose that two of his customers brought actions that resulted in cash settlements:
- In FINRA Case 12-01357 a customer of CItigroup Global Markets, his prior employer, sought damages of $879,680 alleging that Sinkula misrepresented the features of variable annuities that he recommended. That case was settled for $200,000.
- In NASD Case 97-0761 a customer of A.G. Edwards, his prior employer, sought damages of $67,540 and alleged breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, account related negligence and failure to execute. That case was settled for $46,000.
