Misrepresentation and Omission
Securities brokers, like Eric Stuckey, have a duty to their customers to disclose all relevant information associated with potential investments and to disclose that information honestly. When a securities broker leaves information out when pitching an investment to their customers, it is referred to as omission. When a securities broker communicates falsified information to their customers it is known as misrepresentation. These two allegations are very serious charges because it can cause investors to purchase securities that they would not have otherwise purchased had they known all the accurate information.
