Also, while associated with another FINRA member firm, Nekuza falsely reported to the credit card company that his card had been fraudulently used by an individual other than himself to make charges. The findings also stated that he submitted false written responses to FINRA about the charges and provided false testimony to FINRA about the charges. FINRA case #2018060308502 .
