Irving Marvin Burstein (CRD #1218326, Registered Principal, Boynton Beach, Florida, formerly licensed with R.M. Stark & Co., Inc., Legend Securities, Inc., and MSM Securities, Inc. respectively) submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Wavier and Consent in which he was suspended from association with any FINRA member in any principal capacity for one year and required to cooperate with FINRA or any other regulator in any further investigation and hearing related to his member firm. In light of Burstien’s financial status, no monetary sanctions have been imposed. Without admitting or denying the findings, Burnstein consented to the described sanctions and to the entry of findings that he was his firm’s CCO, whose duties included reviewing customer accounts to detect and monitor for unsuitable transactions, excessive trading activity, unauthorized trading/transactions, excessive losses, wholesale recommendations, excessive securities concentrations, and large or routine debit balances. The findings stated that Burnstein failed to review customer accounts for any of these things and limited his daily activities to reviewing the trade blotter and order tickets, and listening to registered representatives make cold calls. FINRA Case No. 2011027667401.
