Customer Complaint

Mr. Silverstein has also been the subject of a customer complaint which alleged churning, excessive trading, unauthorized trading, breach of fiduciary duty, and margin credit extension. The dispute was settled by the firm that employed Mr. Silverstein when the alleged conduct occurred.

Excessive trading occurs when a financial advisor makes many trades in a customer’s account, not to benefit the customer but to generate commissions for the broker.

Churning is a more egregious variation of excessive trading. Churning refers to a situation where the broker executed an excessive amount of trades and did so with the intent to defraud or reckless disregard for the customer’s interest.

Unauthorized trading often occurs in non-discretionary accounts, where a customer retains discretion.  In non-discretionary accounts, brokers must obtain a customer’s permission every time before placing a trade.

Excessive trading, churning, and unauthorized trading are unethical and illegal. These practices are also violations of securities rules and regulations and can cause enormous harm to customers.

Financial Liens

According to Mr. Silverstein’s public disclosure report, he is the subject of three unsatisfied tax liens:

  • 2018: $11,472.53 tax lien filed by the IRS.
  • 2018: $67,485.63 tax lien filed by the IRS.
  • 2013: $12,836.90 tax lien filed by the IRS.
