Investors File Claims About Jon Freeze, Alternative Investment Holdings
Soreide Law Group is investigating potential investor claims of sales practice violations by securities broker Jonathan “Jon” Douglas Freeze [CRD#: 2642023, Canonsburg, Pennsylvania]. Notably, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) BrokerCheck reports that since 2017, no less than nine clients contested the securities recommendations or sales of the securities broker, who associated with Fortune Financial Services until 2017. Notably, Fortune Financial Services clients suggest that Freeze was selling away and sold unsuitable investments. Allegedly, the securities broker caused his clients to experience serious losses. Here’s more.
Jon Freeze Allegedly Solicits Fortune Financial Services Client’s Promissory Notes Purchase In Private Transaction
Apparently, on June 14, 2019, a Fortune Financial Services client filed FINRA Arbitration Claim #: 19-01612 concerning purchases of promissory notes through Freeze. It seems that Fortune Financial Services did not offer these promissory notes. Freeze seemingly solicited the client’s $175,000 purchase as a private transaction. Apparently, the client requested $175,000 in compensation from Fortune Financial Services or Freeze. Evidently, this arbitration is pending a resolution.
Fortune Financial Services Client Indicates That Freeze Caused Losses On DPP, LP Interests
Next, on February 7, 2020, a Fortune Financial Services client filed FINRA Arbitration Claim #: 19-00650 concerning Jon Freeze. Notably, the client asserted that Freeze was “selling away” with regard to the client’s investment in Alternative Energy Holdings. It seems that Freeze solicited the client’s funds for this DPP or LP investment. Evidently, the client experienced losses by following through on Freeze’s instructions. As a result, the client asked for $330,000 in compensation from Fortune Financial Services or Freeze. Apparently, this arbitration is pending a resolution.
Jon Freeze Seemingly Recommends Alternative Energy Holdings To Fortune Financial Services Client
Evidently, on February 27, 2019, a Fortune Financial Services client filed FINRA Arbitration Claim #: 19-00607 concerning Jon Freeze. It appears that this client also sustained losses from purchasing Alternative Energy Holdings through Freeze. Because of this, the client asked for $118,500 in compensation from Fortune Financial Services or Freeze. Apparently, this arbitration is pending a resolution.
FINRA Bars Freeze From The Securities Industry
Notably, FINRA issued an Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (“AWC”) on August 14, 2017 to resolve allegations that Jon Freeze violated FINRA rules by refusing to provide documents and information during its investigation. It appears that in 2017, FINRA probed Freeze on his variable annuity recommendations. Significantly, Freeze agreed to be barred rather than give FINRA what it asked for. This is Freeze’s second time being sanctioned by FINRA. Evidently, FINRA earlier issued Freeze a suspension and a fine for borrowing from a client of LPL Financial.
