Were you victimized by financial advisor William A. Glaser, formerly a broker with National Planning Corp, in purchasing Everett Builders LLC related investments? If so, those investment losses are potentially recoverable against National Planning Corp. The firm was required to reasonably supervise Glaser’s activities while affiliated with the firm. Usually there are red flags that should have alerted the firm to his conduct.
A former infirm U.S. Navy veteran lost more than $400,000 after Glaser convinced him to lend his life savings to a home builder involved in a criminal investigation by federal authorities. Glaser had convinced the veteran to sell annuities he owned and rack up $45,000 in surrender charges to invest in two promissory notes with Everett Builders LLC, a company run by Paul Everett Creager. Glaser allegedly had the client liquidate two variable annuities in 2016, costing him $19,000 in surrender charges in order to invest $235,000 in a promissory note with him. The client never reclaimed $263,000, which he was supposed to. Then, in November 2016, Creager had the client sell another annuity, which cost him $23,993 in surrender charges. In all, the client lost $361,000 in the promissory notes and $45,632 in surrender charges and fees.
