GERALD EATON of Commonwealth Pleads Guilty to FRAUD – Acton, MA

Gerald Eaton, formerly with Commonwealth Financial Network, Pleads Guilty to Fraud and Identity Theft

Have you lost money with financial advisor Gerald Allan Eaton from Acton, Massachusetts?  We are continuing to look into allegations made against Gerald Eaton, who recently pleaded guilty to wire fraud, mail fraud, and identity theft.  Eaton stole more than $3.7 million of investor funds while he was affiliated with Commonwealth Financial Network.

In 2019, Eaton was barred by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority). FINRA barred Gerald Eaton from the securities industry after he failed to respond to an investigation.  Eaton was being investigated after he was terminated by his former brokerage firm, Commonwealth Financial Network. 

Gerald Allan Eaton was a registered representative and financial advisor with Commonwealth Financial Network from 1995 to October 2019.  He worked out of a branch office in Acton, Massachusetts.  Eaton was also terminated by Commonwealth Financial Network regarding these allegations.

Broker-dealers like Commonwealth Financial Network have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm, including investments sold by their registered representatives.  Broker-dealers also must take steps to ensure that their financial advisors follow all securities rules and regulations.  When broker-dealers fail to adequately supervise their registered representatives, they may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
