FINRA Public Disclosure reveals that Paul has been identified in six customer initiated investment related disputes containing accusations of his misconduct while employed with Joseph Stone Capital LLC, Aegis Capital Corp, Rockwell Securities LLC and Arjent Services LLC.

Then, on October 16, 2013, a customer initiated investment related complaint involving Paul’s conduct was resolved for $30,000.00 in damages supported by accusations that contractual obligations and fiduciary obligations owed to the customer had been breached; the customer’s account was churned; trades were not suitable for the customer; and the customer had been defrauded in reference to the over-the-counter equities and stock transactions effected in the customer’s account while Paul was registered with Rockwell Securities LLLC.

Thereafter, on December 20, 2013, a customer filed an investment related complaint concerning Paul’s conduct in which the customer sought $5,150.00 in damages founded on allegations that the customer incurred unjustified poor performance from trades placed in the customer’s account, and Paul executed over-the-counter equities transactions in the customer’s account without procuring the customer’s permission beforehand.

FINRA Arbitration No. 15-02341 (Sept. 10, 2016).

In addition, Paul has been discharged by three brokers based on misconduct accusations. Particularly, on July 21, 2008, Paul was discharged by Arjent Services LLC – a firm he had been employed with since April 11, 2006 – founded on allegations of Paul failing to conform to the firm’s policies and churning of a customer’s investment account. Paul’s subsequent employer, Rockwell Securities LLC, terminated him on June 11, 2012 based upon accusations that Paul accrued a number of customer initiated investment related complaints, and took information about customers from the firm without authorization. Thereafter, Paul was terminated by Aegis Capital Corp on January 31, 2014 supported by allegations that Paul was subject of customer complaints.
