Financial Advisor, Chris Kubiak, Was Terminated For Alleged Bank Fraud, And Has Now Been Barred By FINRA
The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Chris Kubiak, a former Financial Advisor at Carlton & Associates in Brookfield, MI and American Global Wealth Management in McDonough, GA. Chris Kubiak has been in the securities industry since the 1980s and previously worked at Freedom Investors Partners.
According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), in October 2018, Carlton & Associates discharged Chris Kubiak after he was arrested and charged with felony theft by fraud. Shortly thereafter, FINRA sanctioned Chris Kubiak, barring him from the securities industry. The FINRA sanction states:
“Without admitting or denying the findings, Kubiak consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he converted customer funds. The findings stated that four customers, including three seniors, gave funds to Kubiak totaling approximately $270,000 to invest on their behalf. Kubiak, however, deposited the funds into his personal bank account and then used them for his own personal use, including to gamble and to pay for personal medical bills.”
