Soreide Law Group, (888) 760-6552, obtained the following summation of information from FINRA’s website, under “Disciplinary and Other FINRA Actions, May, 2014.”

Darinn Dwight Kim (CRD #4029402, Rolling Meadows, Illinois)

was barred by FINRA for allegedly transferring a client’s funds, selling the client’s securities, and ordering a $190,000 check drawn on the client’s securities account without authorization.

According to FINRA’s findings, allegedly Kim transferred $100,000 from the client’s personal bank account to a personal account that the client had at another bank. The client was unaware of the transfer, was out of the country, and did not authorize it. Allegedly, Darinn Kim wrote a $90,000 check payable to himself from the account and forged the client’s signature on the check for his personal use.

FINRA’s findings reported that Darinn Kim allegedly transferred $100,000 electronically from a client’s securities account to her bank account and sold $185,885 in securities from the client’s securities account. Both of these transactions were without the client’s authorization. The FINRA report goes on to say that Kim then ordered a $190,000 check from the client’s securities account, payable to the client. After discovering the transactions the client stopped payment on the $190,000. FINRA reported that Kim failed to respond to FINRA’s request for information and documents.
