Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Investor Losses on Real Estate Investment Trusts - Gary Joel Chackman (Gary Chackman) Fired by Summit Brokerage Services, Inc., LPL Financial LLC and Barred from Securities Industry
From 2012 until Gary Chackman’s firing in 2013, Gary Chackman was licensed with Summit Brokerage Services, Inc. Gary Chackman was previously licensed with LPL Financial LLC and is now licensed with Heritage Capital LLC. According to FINRA’s records, Gary Chackman was fired by Summit Brokerage Services, Inc. on April 3, 2013. Summit Brokerage Services, Inc. reported to FINRA that Gary Chackman was discharged after Summit Brokerage Services, Inc. became aware that Gary Chackman was operating out of an unregistered location. Gary Chackman was previously fired by LPL Financial LLC on February 23, 2012. LPL Financial LLC reported to FINRA that Gary Chackman was terminated for violation of LPL policies and procedures relevant to the sale of alternative investments.
Subsequent to Gary Chackman’ firings by Summit Brokerage Services, Inc. and LPL Financial LLC, FINRA investigated Gary Chackman and brought a disciplinary action against Gary Chackman. Gary Chackman was barred from the securities and investment banking industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on December 13, 2013. FINRA reports that Gary Chackman consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that Gary Chackman recommended Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) and other alternative investments to Gary Chackman’s member firm customers. According to FINRA, the investments were purchased at periodic intervals in each of their accounts. FINRA reports that to evade the firm’s limitation on the concentration of alternative investments in customers’ accounts, Gary Chackman regularly misidentified his customers’ purported liquid net worth on a required firm form, the alternative investment purchase form.
FINRA also reports that the SEC is currently investigating Gary Chackman relating to non-traded REITS sold by Gary Chackman.
FINRA reports that six complaints involving Gary Chackman’s conduct with LPL Financial LLC were filed alleging unsuitable investments and/or misrepresentation. These complaints settled for $461, 947.50, $200,000, $199,880, $102,753, $85,000, and $84,976.16.
