Goodman & Nekvasil P.A, May Recover Investor Losses – Jack Richard Kelly (Jack Kelly) Barred from Securities Industry and Permitted to Resign from PFS Investments Inc.
From 1989 until Jack Kelly’s resignation in 2013, Jack Kelly was licensed with PFS Investments Inc. According to FINRA records, Jack Kelly was permitted to resign on July 19, 2013. PFS Investments Inc. reported to FINRA that Jack Kelly was permitted to resign after Jack Kelly violated firm policy by borrowing or attempting to borrow money from customers.
Subsequent to Jack Kelly’s termination, FINRA brought a disciplinary action against Jack Kelly in 2014. FINRA reports that Jack Kelly consented to a bar from the securities industry. Jack Kelly consented to the entry of findings that Jack Kelly converted a total of $85,000 from customers. The findings state that a customer gave Jack Kelly a check for $30,000 and $10,000, that was liquidated from a trust account held at Jack Kelly’s member firm, and that Jack Kelly accepted an additional $20,000 and $25,000 from an elderly customer, to be invested in a fund that Jack Kelly had represented would provide a 7% interest. The findings state that Jack Kelly converted the funds to Jack Kelly’s personal use.
FINRA reports fifteen arbitration claims/complaints alleging sales practice violations against Jack Kelly. The claims alleged, among other things, money for outside investments not been repaid, misappropriated funds, never investing funds given by customers, embezzled and/or misused funds.
