ERIC PICA of New York Accused of Stealing $200,000
Eric Pica, with Joseph Stone Capital, Subject of FINRA Complaint
Have you lost money with financial advisor Eric Pica? The Law Firm of Israels & Neuman is investigating allegations made about Eric Patrick Pica from New York, NY. FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) seeks to bar Pica from the securities industry. FINRA alleges that Pica misused customer funds when we directed a customer to write a $200,000 check to Light Capital Group, a company wholly owned by Pica. Instead of directing the money to the customer’s brokerage account, it was alleged that Pica transferred the money to his personal account where he used it to pay a down payment on a house.
Eric Pica was a financial advisor and registered representative of Joseph Stone Capital from April 2015 to the present. He works in a branch office in New York City. Pica has been the subject of seven customer complaints.
