Mar 8, 2022 Misrepresentation

James Buckley (CRD #:4316696), a broker and investment advisor registered with Charles Schwab & Co., is involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record accessed on February 25, 2022. 

According to the allegations filed on December 6, 2021, James Buckley provided inaccurate and misleading information as to whether or not his client could sell shares resulting from a merger even though the “new” shares had not yet been received into her account.  

The investor is seeking $50,000一the case is still pending.

Misrepresentations and omissions concerning material facts in investment recommendations deprive investors of the information they need to assess risks associated with a particular investment. FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits brokerage firms and stockbrokers from making material misrepresentations or inducing people into buying investments with false statements about their potential benefits. This unethical conduct also violates FINRA Rule 2010, which states that brokers must uphold high standards of commercial honor.
