In addition, there is one settled complaint and a separation reflected on his CRD:
• July 2020 – “The POA for the client made various allegations related to the financial advisor’s recommendation in October 2019 that the client transfer money from the client’s EDJ account to the client’s bank account where the client then gave the financial advisor cashier checks totaling $49,000.00 to purchase Personal Seat Licenses for the new Las Vegas Raider’s National Football League team.” It was settled for $51,685.
• July 2020 – Merrill Lynch terminated Javelin Mikol San Nicolas over “Concerns that a client issued cashiers’ checks to the registered representative with proceeds from withdrawal from firm account. The registered representative stated that the checks were for the option of purchasing two Personal Seat Licenses (“PSLs”) for the Las Vegas Raiders football team, to be transferred to the client’s name later in 2020. At the time of termination the client had not received the purported PSLs.”
