J. Michael Casas Barred and Ordered Restitution of $50,000 by FINRA; Casas Allegedly Misrepresented that the intended purpose of the funds was for accounting fees, legal fees, and operational expenses of MCB Capital Partners, LLC
Casas allegedly represented that the intended purpose of the aforementioned funds was for accounting fees, legal fees, and for operational expenses of MCB Capital Partners, LLC, which was formed in October 2010 to provide investment banking advisory services, according to the aforementioned Complaint from FINRA’s Department of Enforcement presently being examined by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.
Allegedly only two individuals invested in MCB, the Complaint notes, but, as one of the investors hired Casas to work for him and purportedly refused to testify at the hearing, the Hearing Panel was unable to determine if the individual recouped any of his losses when negotiating Casas’s salary before employing him, said Complaint notes.
The other investor allegedly filed for arbitration in 2012 and the dispute is purportedly pending, the Complaint states.
Based on the aforementioned behavior, Casas allegedly violates FINRA Rules and therefore has been borrowed and ordered restitution of $50,000, the Complaint reports.
