The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) recently barred Malcolm J. Babit from the industry. He allegedly was involved in misappropriation, unlicensed security solicitation and an outside business activity and potentially a private securities transaction. This is commonly referred to as selling away, and is when a broker solicits or sells a security without the knowledge of his investment firm. It is used to generate large commissions for the broker and is against securities rules and regulations. Babit was registered with PFS Securities. If you invested and lost money with Malcolm J.
