INVESTOR WARNING! Investigation of WOLF POPPER of J.H. DARBIE & COMPANY
Wolf Popper, with J.H. Darbie & Company, Suspended 30 days from the Securities Industry
Have you lost money with financial advisor Wolf Popper of New York, New York? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Wolf Alexander Popper. FINRA suspended Popper from the securities industry for 30 days and fined him $5,000 regarding allegations that he recommended that customers withdraw money from their home equity to invest in variable annuities. Popper was also alleged to have misrepresented the risks of investing in these variable annuities using home equity.
For over a decade, FINRA has warned brokers about using home equity to invest. NASD Notice to Members 04-89 discusses the many pitfalls of using home equity to invest, including if the investor fails to achieve enough return to meet the monthly mortgage payments. This could eventually lead to an investor losing their home.
