The Allegations

In September 2017, a customer alleged that Michael Nanto forged an endorsement signature on a check meant for the customer and converted the full amount of the check for $6,946. This case was settled for $7,500 in damages. He eventually pled guilty to a charge of ‘Grand Theft.’

Michael Nanto was eventually barred by FINRA from acting as a securities broker in any fashion.
