David Lerner Broker, Scott Mass, Has $500,000 Pending Customer Complaint Regarding The Sale Of Puerto Rico Bonds

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Scott Mass, a Financial Advisor at David Lerner & Assoc. in Syosset, New York.  Scott Mass has been in the securities industry since the 1980s and has worked for David Lerner his entire career.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on July 2, 2018, a customer filed a complaint alleging that Scott Mass recommended the sale of unsuitable Puerto Rico municipal bonds.  The alleged damages are $500,000 and the matter remains pending.

Puerto Rico has been in a recession since 2006 and its economic and fiscal status deteriorated incrementally each year until its bond market ultimately collapsed in 2013.  Since 2013, Puerto Rico municipal bonds have continued to deteriorate and ultimately defaulted.  The island is in the process of restructuring the outstanding bonds, which may leave investors with pennies on the dollar.

Scott Mass has been the subject of four additional customer complaints in his career, alleging sales practice violations.  Customers previously alleged that Scott Mass made material misrepresentations regarding the risks of investments, sold them unsuitable securities and breached his fiduciary duties.
