Devin Wicker – Financial Advisor/Broker Barred by FINRA | Goodman & Nekvasil, P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
Devin Wicker a/k/a Devin Lamarr Wicker CRD #4228250
Devin Wicker is a previously licensed financial advisor with J.V.B. Financial Group, LLC. According to Devin Wicker’s BrokerCheck Report, Devin Wicker was barred from the securities industry in December 2021.
According to FINRA:
Wicker was named a respondent in a FINRA complaint alleging that he improperly used and converted a customer’s funds to pay his member firm’s business expenses without the customer’s authorization or approval. The complaint alleges that the firm received $50,000 from an investment-banking customer for the purpose of paying a retainer to a law firm hired in connection with a prospective public offering. However, rather than pay that law firm, Wicker used the money to pay the firm’s business expenses, including its own legal bills. To date, Wicker has not returned the customer’s funds. The customer retained the firm as underwriter for a planned public offering. In anticipation of retaining a law firm to act as underwriter’s counsel in connection with the customer offering, the firm sent an invoice to the customer for $50,000, directing that the customer wire those funds to it so that it could pay the law firm. The customer transferred $50,000 to the firm’s bank account solely for the purpose of paying the underwriter’s counsel retainer. Wicker was notified by email that the customer had sent the funds to the firm and he signed an agreement on the firm’s behalf formally retaining the law firm as underwriter’s counsel.
