Investor Allegations

On September 9, 2021, an investor alleged that Craig Friedrichsen sold investments that were misleadingly represented as low-risk, safe, and suitable investments. The investor is seeking a settlement of $105,000.00; the dispute is pending.

Misrepresentation also violates The Securities Act of 1933, which prohibits deceit, misrepresentation, and other fraud in the sale of securities. 

FINRA Rule 2010

Craig Friedrichsen’s alleged conduct is also unethical and violates FINRA Rule 2010, which states the brokers must uphold the highest standards of commercial honor.
