Generally, financial advisors or stockbrokers should not accept checks that are written to the advisor or their direct business. The checks generally should be written out to the licensed brokerage firm that they work for, or to the issuing company (such as a mutual fund, annuity, etc.). Accepting checks from client and sending fictitious statements is often a sign of fraud.
