The SEC alleged that Chen participated in a pyramid scheme called CKB186 that targeted the Asian American community between May 2012 and August 2013. She represented that the investments were in an internet-based company that sold children’s books. Chen pled guilty to a related criminal matter in March 2016.

Brokerage firms like TransAmerica Financial Advisors have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm. Brokerage firms also must take steps to ensure that their financial advisors follow all securities rules and regulations, as well as internal firm policies. When brokerage firms fail to adequately supervise their registered representatives, they may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
