UPDATE! Christopher Wendel Victim Information on Money Recovery
Christopher Wendel Barred by FINRA for Selling Woodbridge
Have you lost money investing in the Woodbridge Group of Companies through broker Christopher Wendel? Our firm is investigating whether Christopher Wendel from Celina, Ohio sold investments in the Woodbridge Group of Companies to his customers. FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) recently barred Christopher Wendel from the securities industry, alleging that Wendel sold investments in Woodbridge without first getting permission from his former brokerage firm, SA Stone Wealth Management.
Christopher Wendel was a financial advisor with SA Stone Wealth Management (also known as Sterne Agee Financial Services) from September 2014 to September 2017. He worked in a branch office in Celina, Ohio. Wendel has been the subject of at least five customer complaints, and he was also terminated by SA Stone Wealth Management.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a complaint against the Woodbridge Group of Companies, alleging that this amounted to a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme. The SEC is concerned that Woodbridge may have sold unregistered securities and may have made material misrepresentations in connection with selling its investments to investors.
