Michael Frew, formerly associated with Wells Fargo Advisors, is barred from the securities industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) after it conducted an investigation regarding allegations that he had accepted loans from customers or converted customer funds.

The Peiffer Rosca securities practice attorneys Alan Rosca and Joe Peiffer are investigating the matter.

Frew is accused of soliciting millions of dollars from his clients and his friends and family by representing that the money would be used by real estate developers to rehabilitate properties affected by natural disasters. Frew is alleged to have promised investors interest payments ranging from 10 to 14 percent per year. Recently, investors allegedly stopped receiving payments and were unable to reach Frew.

Frew failed to comply with an investigation conducted by FINRA regarding the allegations that Frew had accepted loans from customers or converted customer funds, according to FINRA. Frew agreed to be barred from the securities industry without denying or admitting FINRA’s findings.
