SEC Charges: Former Merrill Lynch Broker Marcus Boggs

In August, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed charges against Marcus Boggs alleging that he stole more than $1.7 million from at least three different clients. Specifically, the SEC contends that Mr. Boggs made approximately 200 unauthorized wire transfers — sending money from customer accounts directly to his own American Express account.

Notably, two claims related to this broker’s misconduct have already been settled. One claim was settled for $801,121.51 and the other was settled for $3,795,507.61. In both cases, the Merrill Lynch investors brought the claims after determining that Mr. Boggs had made unapproved wire transfers out of their account.
