Stoltmann Law Offices is investigating Eric Andre Dallas Sr., a former registered representative with Morgan Stanley. According to his Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Dallas is accused of participating in a check kiting scheme in which he allegedly wrote checks to himself drawn against his two personal brokerage accounts that he maintained at Morgan Stanley. Dallas allegedly knew that the two accounts contained insufficient funds to cover the costs of the checks. In 2013 alone, Dallas wrote 85 checks totaling $44,000. He also approved bounced checks in his personal accounts, ultimately clearing the checks despite that fact that he had insufficient funds. He also reversed various fees that had been charged to his account, including over 250 returned check fees totaling over $6,000. Dallas wrote each check from one bank account and deposited it into the second account, and then immediately withdrew money from that second bank account, even though he knew there was not enough money in the second account to do so. This is against securities rules and regulations and is illegal. For this he was permanently barred from the industry by FINRA.
Dallas was registered with Citigroup Global Markets in New York, New York from December 1999 until June 2009, and Morgan Stanley in New York from June 2009 until October 2013. He has no customer disputes against him and is not currently registered with any member firm. He is not licensed within the industry and has been permanently barred from associating with any FINRA member firms.
