According to publicly available records Daniel John Haugh (CRD#2162854) , a stockbroker who currently is the chief compliance officer of PTI Securities & Futures , disclose a recent regulatory event and a customer dispute.
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 April 2017 Haugh was censured and fined $2,500 by Illinois securities regulators for failing to verify information to determine if emails that he received requesting the transfer of funds were being sent by his client. The account involved was an IRA account which belonged to a Texas resident. A phony SPAM email purportedly from the account holder resulted in the transfer of about $45,000 by PTI Securities to an individual in Louisiana. Another phony email a month later resulted in PTI Securities transferring another $45,000 to an individual in Alabama.
In May 2017 a customer of PTI Securities & Futures filed FINRA Case 17-01171 seeking $2.5 million in damages alleging that their account, which contained derivatives, equities and options, was mismanaged from 2008-2016. That matter was resolved in 10/2018 for $14999 .
