Claimant further alleges that she was asked to sign blank forms and that certain funds were misappropriated or misused by her registered representative/ spouse. Activity period: 5/2016 – 5/2019.” The customer is seeking $600,000 in damages.
September 2020. “Claimants allege that Maziar Monshi, while associated with LPL from 2006 through 2015 and with AFS from 2015 through 2016 recommended unsuitable investments in a number of REITs and BDCs, as well as other high-commission illiquid investment recommendations.” The customer is seeking $3,900,000 in damages and the case is currently pending.
