FRAUD ALERT—Daniel Glick, Formerly With Transamerica Financial Advisors, Inc., Barred By FINRA After Criminal Conviction For Stealing Money From Clients
The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Daniel Glick, a Financial Advisor at Transamerica Financial Advisors in Oakland Park, Illinois. Daniel Glick first entered the securities industry in the 1990s and previously worked for World Group Securities and World Equity Group.
According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on May 4, 2018, the Securities Exchange Commission permanently barred Daniel Glick from associating with any broker dealer. This sanction follows an investigation and separately filed criminal charges against Daniel Glick for scamming elderly investors out of more than $5 million. Daniel Glick converted the money for his own personal use.
This misconduct has led to the filing of two customer complaints against Transamerica and Daniel Glick for “misappropriation of funds”. The first complaint, filed in February 2018, alleged damages of $6.42 million while the second complaint alleged damages of $200,000.
