James Paul Kolf, who first started in the brokerage business with New England Securities in 2009, allegedly made material misrepresentations and omissions in the sale of at Least $588,000 in so-called SFN Financial Network Securities to twelve customers, according to a recent FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) currently under review by attorneys Jason Kane and James Booker.
The securities which Kolf, who first started in the brokerage business with New England Securities in 2009, allegedly converted were not authentic, however, and he allegedly used said funds pay his business and personal expenses, the AWC further notes.
Kolf allegedly informed clients that the terms of the investments included paid interest at the rate of 6%, the AWC reports. Kols, it appears, allegedly never invested his customers’ funds in SFN Financial Network as the securities allegedly never existed, the AWC reports.
