Doli Kumar Suspended for Allegedly Misrepresenting Personal Information
Doli Kumar (CRD #: 6586313), a broker formerly registered with Key Investment Services, consented to a two-month FINRA suspension together with a $2,500 fine according to her BrokerCheck Record, accessed on November 23, 2021.
This suspension stems from allegations that she misrepresented her personal information while applying for a loan, in violation of FINRA rule 2010.
According to an Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent agreement dated October 20, 2021, Doli Kumar consented to the findings that in June 2020, she made negligent misrepresentations while applying for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan from the U.S Small Business Administration (SBA). This matter originated from FINRA’s investigation concerning the Form U5 filed by her former member firm, Key Investment Services.
According to the allegations, In June 2020, Doli Kumar submitted an application to the SBA for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan, but she did not review the loan program requirements to determine her eligibility prior to submitting her application.
In her application to the SBA, Doli Kumar allegedly misrepresented that she was the owner of a real estate business and the business had earned revenues. According to FINRA, she had not disclosed any other outside business activities and did not operate any business eligible for a small business loan from the SBA. The AWC further alleges that SBA, based on her misrepresentations, separately granted her a $1,000 Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance.
After the SBA approved her loan application, Doli Kumar, for the first time, allegedly read the Loan program requirements and determined that she was not eligible for the program. She then allegedly withdrew her application and did not sign the approved $20,000 loan agreement. She has also reportedly not repaid the $1,000 back to the SBA. As a result, she violated FINRA Rule 2010, which requires all registered members to observe high standards of commercial honor and just principles in their business dealings.
