SCOTT KLOR of LPL Financial Suspended and Fined
Have you lost money with financial advisor Scott Klor of LPL Financial in life settlements (viaticals)?
We are looking into allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Scott Klor. FINRA alleged that Klor solicited investors to invest in a life settlement or viatical while registered at his brokerage firm, LPL Financial. Klor recommended setting up an LLC, which was then used to purchase a life insurance policy on a terminally ill person. While the person eventually passed away in 2017, the death benefit was less worth than the amount invested, leaving five investors with over $200,000 in losses.
It was further alleged that Klor failed to disclose these sales to his brokerage firm, LPL Financial. Scott P. Klor agreed to settle the claims with FINRA. He agreed to pay a $5,000 fine and to a fourteen-month suspension from the securities industry.
Scott Patrick Klor was a registered representative and advisor with LPL Financial from March 2011 to May 2017. He was assigned to a branch office in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Klor was also terminated for this conduct. Klor also worked at Business First Bank.
