Cheryl George; RBC Capital Markets; Williamsville, New York

AdobeStock_199789587-300x200According to a recent Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), RBC Capital Markets broker Cheryl George has violated securities laws and internal firm rules. Allegedly, George received an email from an individual purporting to be a customer of RBC requesting that she transfer funds for a wire transfer. In order to generate funds for that request, Cheryl George sold securities from the customer’s account without authorization from the customer or from the firm. She told RBC that she had received the customer’s transfer request verbally, when, in fact, she had only received the request over email. This is against securities laws. A broker must receive a verbal request from a customer in order to transfer funds. This misconduct occurred in June of 2017. She was suspended from associating with any Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) member firm in any capacity for 20 days and was fined $5,000.
According to her online, FINRA BrokerCheck report, Cheryl A. George was previously registered with Citigroup Global Markets in Williamsville, New York from March 2001 until June 2009, Morgan Stanley in Williamsville from June 2009 until December 2009, and RBC Capital Markets in Williamsville from December 2009 until April 2018. She is not currently registered as a broker within the industry.
