FINRA Arbitration Lawyer, Russell L. Forkey, Esq.

June, 2011:

Shanoa Adrianne Rose Akins (CRD #4552640, Associated Person, Sunrise, Florida) submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent in which she was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. Without admitting or denying the findings, Akins consented to the described sanction and to the entry of findings that she misappropriated approximately $1.1 million from her member firm. The findings stated that Akins created false entries in the firm’s books and records, ranging in amounts of $250 to $50,000, which caused the firm to pay her money to which she was not entitled. (FINRA Case #2011027093001).
