The following information is from FINRA’s website under “Disciplinary and Other FINRA Actions, November, 2012.”

Evan Coley Eggers (CRD #5205969, Registered Representative, Jacksonville, Florida)

fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for six months. Without admitting or denying the findings, Eggers consented to the described sanctions and to the entry of findings that
he made premium payments for his customers’ life insurance policies, using his personal funds to make the payments.

FINRA’s findings stated that each payment was submitted to his member firm via a money order, a practice forbidden by company policy. On each money order, Eggers falsified the customer’s signature. On a couple of occasions, Eggers falsified the customer’s signature to reduce the value of a life insurance policy.

The FINRA findings also stated that all insurance policies at issue were less than one year old. By continuing payment of the premiums, all policies remained active through a period of 13 months, thus qualifying Eggers for potential remuneration.

The suspension is in effect from October 1, 2012, through March 31, 2013. (FINRA Case #2011026438701)
