Soreide Law Group is reviewing possible investor claims in regard to securities broker Joseph John Weinrich Sr. (CRD#: 461987, Orange, California). Notably, FINRA BrokerCheck shows that at least three investors complained about the broker, who worked for Moloney Securities from 1999 to 2018. Significantly, these disputes suggest that Weinrich made unsuitable and unauthorized securities transactions. Let’s take a brief look at these disputes about Weinrich:
Moloney Securities Client Indicates That Joseph Weinrich Breached Fiduciary Duty
Evidently, a client of Moloney Securities brought a complaint about Joseph Weinrich on December 4, 2018. First of all, Weinrich supposedly sold the client bad oil and gas investments. It seems that he violated his fiduciary responsibility by placing his interests ahead of the client’s interests with respect to these securities transactions. The client also contended that Weinrich was negligent and had failed to disclose risks of the investments he sold. For this reason, Moloney Securities opted to pay the client $20,000. Accordingly, this matter was settled December 24, 2018.
Weinrich Allegedly Makes Unauthorized, Excessive Trades In Moloney Securities Client’s Account
Apparently, a second Moloney Securities client took issue with Joseph Weinrich via FINRA Arbitration Claim #: 18-00096. It appears that Weinrich sold the client unsuitable alternative investments from 2011 to 2017 which included oil and gas securities, REITs, MLPs and BDCs. Supposedly, Weinrich was negligent and traded without the client’s permission. Finally, the client alleged the failure to supervise on the part of Moloney Securities. Evidently, on December 20, 2018, Moloney Securities opted to pay the client $69,000 to put this claim to rest.
Stifel Nicolaus Client Suggests Joseph Weinrich Was Negligent
FINRA BrokerCheck also shows that a client of Stifel Nicolaus (Joseph Weinrich’s prior employer) took aim at him through a NASD Arbitration Claim. Mainly, the client suggested that Weinrich acted negligently in the client’s account. Not only that, but Weinrich supposedly violated his fiduciary responsibility to the client. Apparently, this matter settled through Stifel Nicolaus paying the client $20,000. Apparently, Weinrich personally contributed $10,000 to the settlement.
